Welcome Professor Bowsher's English 150 Students!


Welcome! This guide will help you find information for your I-Search paper.

I-Search Research Backgrounder

Great Example on Asthma


  • Take a look at 2 databases
  • Define what a database is
  • Evaluate sources using the CRAAP test
  • Try to find some good sources (sources = pieces of information) for your papers!
  • Optional: If you'd like, we can also look at Super Search, which is a way to search almost all of our library's resources at once

Welcome to the library. I hope you come back again and again!
