GBL 1305: Research Paper Resources: Home

This guide will show you how to use the Baylor Libraries' resources to find the kind of reliable and scholarly articles you need to use for an argumentative paper.

Welcome to your GBL 1305: Research Paper Resources Guide!

This guide will help you successfully find the outside sources you need to write your argumentative paper for this class. It is divided into four (4) sections:

  1. A video on how to download and use Zotero (and a guide to take you step-by-step through dowloading and learning Zotero)
  2. A video and instruction on using the source Credo to help you find other search words and ideas before you go to Step 3
  3. A video demonstrating how to use the database MAS Complete to find outside articles and showing some cues to decide if an article is reliable or scholarly
  4. A short presentation on academic communication that will help you understand how academic writers use several academic articles to build their arguments and create new knowledge.

Please reach out to me using the contact information on the right side of this page if you have any questions.
