Researching The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass

The tabs in this box will help you research the themes and topics related to The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass

As you search for information about your topic, look at each source you find with these questions in mind:

  • What new information does this source add?
  • What claim does it support?
  • How does it help your focus?
  • What new questions does it raise?
  • Does it lead to any other sources of information that might provide more details or better evidence?

Applying these questions to each source you find will allow you to quickly eliminate unnecessary sources.

Our Kanopy and AVON databases have thousands of videos that are easily searched and accessed.

Access to many of the database links on this guide requires NSCC authentication - users must sign in with their MyNorthshore username & password

If you want to place any library materials on hold, request a book from another library, or check out any physical library materials out you will need to have your NSCC ID.

picture of an envelopeWhen researching topics for a paper or project, it's important to keep track of the sources you use. The easiest way to do this is to email a source to yourself in the database. This way whenever you come across a source you think you might want to use, you email it and have a record of the source and a way to get the citation when you need it. Most of our databases have an option to email when you're looking at an article, book, or video.
