FYSE 1547 - Water Rights & Resources
This activity will walk you through the process of using library tools to gather information across different types of resources. In the process of working on a research project, you will need to consult and use a variety of resource types:
* Primary sources
* Secondary sources
* Reference works (e.g. encyclopedia articles, aka 'tertiary' sources)
* Scholarly articles (e.g. from scholarly, peer-reviewed journals)
* Popular articles (e.g. from magazines or newspapers)
You will use these different sources in different ways, and you will use different tools and strategies to find and evaluate these sources.
For this exercise, we will be focusing on the the topic of "Privatization of Water Rights in Sub-Saharan Africa." We can break this topic into three 'concepts':
Topic: Water Rights, Fresh Water, Water Access, etc.
Geography: Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, individual country names, etc.
Theory: Privatization, Neoliberalism, Common Resources, etc.
You will be working in pairs, but wil be submitting only ONE set of answers.
Please feel free to ask Ryan questions during this activity - he's your librarian!
You'll be submitting your answers, and you'll be able to see other folk's answers at the end, but this is all anonymous.
