If you're running a large group session, you may want to modify these slides to cut these sections out. You'll also find some helpful content in the Notes sections.

Journal access[edit]

  • You can use Worldcat free to get citations in MLA, Chicago, and other bibliographic formats.
  • The Wikipedia Library Journals Project works to grant Wikipedians access to databases to help with their Wikipedia work, and reference work, and for general knowledge. You can request an account on the project pages but must do so in advance. Some journals, such as JSTOR, require editors to have at least 1 year and 1000 edits worth of experience.
