This guide is designed for students of Dr. Steele's PBHL-E517 Fundamentals of Epidemiology class.
To write the research paper for this class, you will need to use many different types of resources to investigate a significant epidemiological event, analyze data supporting each side of the controversy, and craft an argument.
Types of sources include:
Historical (newspapers, magazines, digital library collections)
Scientific & academic (library databases)
Policy & legislation
Grey literature (unpublished literature, reports or white papers from government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and private companies)
Most resources on this guide can be used for all four research topics, but topic-specific resources are also included.
The slides and transcripts for these tutorials are available for download at the bottom of this page.
