After you have explored your pro/con topic and narrowed your focus, your professor may require you to locate and use scholarly, peer-reviewed evidence to support your argument.
To find scholarly, peer-reviewed evidence to support your argument use the search box on the main library website or choose a recommended database. To limit your results to scholarly articles, use the limit results options on the left side of the screen
Keep in mind that internet browsers, like Google, don't filter results like databases, so, you will have to determine on your own if the article is academic and meets the requirements for your assignment. If you aren't sure, be sure to ask your professor or a librarian if your article is academic, scholarly and peer-reviewed.
