Geography 320

This guide is intended to support research for the case study paper in the Geography 320 course. These sources are intended to help students identify a significant weather event and research both the event itself as well as the impacts of the event.

General Resources

If you are ready to jump right in, here are the main places to start:

  • Research@UWW - Find "Everything" (articles, books, & more)
    This discovery tool searches multiple resources simultaneously (articles from many disciplines, books, ebooks, videos, digital resources, government documents, etc.), or you can change from searching "Everything" to only "Articles" or just our local resources (not articles), i.e., UWW's books, media, government documents, and more.
  • A-Z Databases List
    Online research databases available through the Library. Search these resources to find articles and other information on your topic, primarily in journals, magazines, and newspapers. Databases are available via the alphabetical listing, or sorted by broad subject area using the drop-down menus at the top.
  • Google Scholar
    Google Scholar can help you find both books and articles, but if you use Google Scholar from off campus, configure the settings to use Andersen Library's full text subscription access.
  • Journals
    Use this search to find out whether the Library owns a particular journal, magazine, or newspaper, as well as the dates and formats available. Search by periodical title, as opposed to article title.
