This course page was created for CORE 1000: Oppression & Resistance with Professor Ellen Carnaghan in Fall 2023. Contact your class librarian (Rebecca Hyde) with any questions or to make an appointment for an in depth research consultation. For quick and/or general questions you can also use our 24/5 chat assistance to get help with your research! Don't forget, if you've been researching for 20 or 30 minutes and are getting anywhere, stop what you're doing and ask for help!
Have you already spent 20 minutes search and you feel like you're hitting a wall? Stop what you're doing and contact your librarian!
Research takes time, and when you're working on research for a paper you might spend hours researching and try many, many searches before you're done. But you shouldn't spend hours searching and finding nothing. If you spend 20-30 minutes on your research and you're not finding anything remotely relevant, please stop what you're doing and contact your librarian! I can help you develop search search strategy, and maybe choose another database more suited for your topic.
