Question: I need help finding articles for Dr. Surface's class about how the NFL punishes African American players differently than white players like Ben Rothlisberger (sp) and Pacman Jones.
Answer given to question: The first thing I asked him to consider is who would write an article like this and for what audience. After a bit of thought he suggested Sports Illustrated or Sporting News. I reminded him that while those magazines contained often valid information, Dr. Surface requires scholarly peer reviewed articles. We looked under the periodical articles link at the library homepage and he decided to try Academic Search Complete and Sportdiscus fulltext.
Next we had to figure out a research strategy.
We started with NFL, race relations and then narrowed or widen the search based the the subjects headings suggested by ASC.
