Explain what is working for you in terms of a plan or search strategy for finding relevant, current literature, including Walden Library support resources you would recommend.

Assignment

Post a summary of your experience in beginning your literature search and assess your initial progress.
Explain what is working for you in terms of a plan or search strategy for finding relevant, current literature, including Walden Library support resources you would recommend. Explain issues of concern and specific questions regarding the search process. References and citations are not required.

This post is all about beginning to conduct a literature search in the Walden Library. This Discussion is a particularly good example of how colleagues can support one another in tandem as common work gets underway.
Note what you are discovering about search strategies that could be of benefit to colleagues, and prepare to consider their recommendations as well.
Be sure that you begin your search of scholarly literature in the Walden Library promptly this week, to be prepared to post by Day 2. References and citations are not required for this Discussion.

To prepare:
• Review the Week 8 Learning Resources, with particular attention to the Walden Library resources to support your literature search.
• Evaluate your process as you access the resource materials and your literature search gets underway. Keep in mind the importance of selecting current literature, i.e., published in the previous 5 years. Consider what is working for you in identifying search topics related to your critical question and in finding relevant current articles, and what questions you have for colleagues and your Instructor.
• Also draw on your Week 7 Discussion experience in identifying scholarly articles related to your critical question and comments from colleagues to act on as you begin your literature search. Be proactive in stating your questions and needs and clarifying your search process, to maximize the value of this Discussion and your Assignment in this module.
• In addition to your Discussion post, you may also contact the Instructor directly by email with specific questions or needs related to your literature search. Follow the guidelines in the Course Syllabus for contacting the Instructor. ( Is there a relevant question for us to ask the instructor regarding this last bullet?)
