The EGR 104 Library Guide has been deveolped to assist you in accomplishing some of the key class assignments and course learning objectives.

Starting Research on Scholarly Literature

Time, Newsweek, Popular Science, and other magazines serve the purpose of summarizing your topic. This is reporting, not scholarly research. Look through theses articles for names of researchers and institutes that are working on the project. These names may help you narrow your topic if there is too much information. These articles often include useful websites, but these are frequently are biased in one direction or another. Corporate or product websites are biased in favor of the company. Trade journals cover the news of particular industries and the latest technological developments. Scholarly articles can review the literature, comment on the research, and report the latest research and developments. These articles will tell you what the engineering world is doing.  These are starter databeses for these levels of information. Your research for engineering classes should not stop here.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-two Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
