FYI 101/2: Traylor

Library resources for Garrett Traylor's First Year Inquiry students!


Welcome! You've reached the FYH 102 (Strunk) course page dedicated to providing library support for assignments in your class. Your class will meet twice in the library during the spring term, covering the following topics:

  • Mar 7: Research support day.
  • Apr 11: Misinformation and evaluating sources.

This page will also include some "best bet" databases for supporting your research in this class.

Library Lesson 2: Apr 11

Today we will primarily discuss misinformation and strategies for evaluating sources. Much of this information can be found in the Evaluating Sources section of this guide, and you will also get a printed handout covering key points from the material in class.

We will also start class with the "Spot the Troll" activity from Clemson University and take our discussion from there.

You have also been assigned a group poster research project for which you will need to complete a short literature review including information on your chosen topics from scientists, scholars, public health officials, and other relevant authorities, and at least one graphic from an authoritative source (or created based on your research). We will have some time to start research and/or evaluate sources you have found so far.

Best Bets
