ENGL 3330 -- Dr. Caroll Nardone


This guide is intended for use in ENGL 3330, Introduction to Technical Writing, taught by Dr. Caroll Nardone. Below you will find some key databases and additional resources students may find useful for their coursework. 

For additional assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. That's why I'm here! You can find me in person at SHSU - The Woodlands Center, or you can contact me via phone, e-mail, or the chat box on the left. Thanks!

Please note: This guide is not exhaustive and is only intended to help students get started in their research. Also, this guide was originally created for Summer 2015's ENGL 3330 taught by Dr. Caroll Nardone. Although the guide should prove useful for other ENGL 3330 courses, this is not its original intention.

Research Databases and Resources

Below you will find some suggested databases that may be helpful in your research. This list is not exhaustive and you may need to utilize databases that are not listed here.

As you get started with your research, an excellent resource no matter what topic you are using, is Business Source Complete (see below). Business Source Complete should give some information for most topics for your Recommendation Report Project. One major benefit of Business Source Complete is the ability to search trade publications specifically. I recommend starting here.

Because the nature of your assignment allows for topics from a variety of subject areas, I have listed a couple other multi-disciplinary databases/resources that may be useful. It may become necessary to search other subject-specific databases, however. To do that, click on the Articles & More tab on the Newton Gresham Library Homepage and select the subject area that most closely matches your topic.
