11/20/2014 11:31:38Source 3BookWe copied the link into a search engine to get more information. We then filtered to find .edu links only. This hopefully eliminated corrupt sources like Wikipedia. If you type in the name of the strike (Miners' Strike) and "Africa" it comes up. We just used Google books as a search engine to find our source. We just typed in "St. James Encyclopedia of Labor History" and it came up. It was kind of hard to find using internet search engines. http://go.galegroup.com/ps/i.do?id=GALE%7CCX3408900187&v=2.1&u=txshracd2598&it=r&p=GVRL&sw=w&asid=30793419cad37a76149e6d6575fb1c10I guess I'm somewhat confused on how to locate the the library research databases. I'm also confused on how to get sources that give a better synopsis of the material, and not just a short opinionated assessment. You could definitely use this encyclopedia to discuss how the drive toward maximum efficiency infringes upon individual economic rights and fairness.
