EGL 102 - Phil Sloan - Fall 2023


This research guide was created by your librarian, Elizabeth Sanderson--specifically for Prof. Sloan's EGL 102 class. Here you will find resources and tools that will help you successfully navigate the research process. Be sure to check out the pages about Oakton Library databases and catalog, as well as those about citations and how to avoid plagiarism. If you have any questions along the way, don't hesitate to reach out either by email or via Ask a Librarian chat. You can also stop in at Skokie and Des Plaines campuses for assistance during library hours.

At the end of this instruction session you should be able to:

  • Explain the Peer Review process.
  • Develop new specific research questions by refining general ones.
  • Compare information access between marginalized and privileged groups.
  • Describe how two or more kinds of information can contribute to the research process.
  • Identify an authoritative source related to your area of inquiry.
