ECO 251 Course InfoGuide

Supplemental readings and research resources for ECO 251 students

Research Resource: CPCC Library Databases

Databases are academic search engines that offer research unavailable anywhere else on the web. Here are some best bets for ECO 251:

Research Resource: Library One-Search

Searches books, ebooks, streaming videos, research articles and more! Here is an example:

Did you find something you think you can use? Evaluate first!

C – Currency: When was this information written or last updated? Is it outdated?
R – Relevance: Does this help your topic? Is it an appropriate level?
A – Authority: Who wrote it? What are their qualifications?
A – Accuracy: Is it supported by evidence? Any typos or other errors?
P – Purpose: Is it trying to inform, sell, persuade, or entertain? Is the info fact, opinion, or propaganda? Why is the information here?

If your source doesn't pass the CRAAP Test, then consider finding something better! Need help? Ask a librarian!
