This guide is your personal library for finding reliable, quality information for your Effective Speaking assignments. There's a page for each assignment that you can see by clicking on the tabs at the top of the guide. Each page has the resources that should work best for that assignment, along with instructions and help options.
The types of sources that will be best for you depend on your topic, so don't expect every source you try to have information. If you need help figuring out the best sources for your topic, or have any other research questions, post to the "Questions for the Librarian" discussion in the course space in Canvas, send me a message, or visit the reference desk of the library on your campus.
Plagiarism is defined as appropriating someone else's words or ideas without acknowledgment.
