Choosing a resource

After you've chosen a topic, the next step is figuring out what type of information you need (Background? Statistics? Case Studies?) and what format, (Books? Articles? Websites?).

Books are good for comprehensive, established topics. For example, an overview of the coffee industry or fair trade movement. KentLINK and OhioLINK catalogs are linked below.

Articles are good for current and narrow topics. For example, the impact of fair trade on women in Ethiopia. Use the guides listed below to find databases on your topic.

TOPICS:

The history of the Soviet Union.

How the Soviet Union was represented in British magazines during WWII

Regionalism and economic development in the Soviet Union

Memoir of growing up in the Soviet Union
