COMM 100 - Bridges - Maple Woods

Welcome

Welcome to the course guide for Dr. Ayanna Bridges' Comm 100 class. This guide will help you find, cite, and evaluate sources so you are prepared to complete your librarian source check assignment. 

Click on the Finding and Evaluating Sources tab for some general tips on what sources are useful for which topics. Then navigate to Books, Articles, or Websites to learn more about finding and evaluating that type of source.

Finally, to cite those sources, click on Citing and consult the resources for MLA citation.

Below this box are some tips for preparing for your library visit.

Library Visit Tips

Depending on your class size and how close you are to conferences, expect a line at the reference desk.

You may be sent back to find better sources, so give yourself plenty of time.

Get your sources checked before using those sources in your speech, in case librarians do not approve them.

Getting Sources Approved

You can meet with a librarian in person during library hours from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm Mondays through Thursdays and 8:00 am to 3:30 pm on Fridays.

Be aware that there may be some wait time. If you don't want to wait, you can always schedule a virtual appointment.
