PBHL-E517 Fundamentals of Epidemiology

Getting Started

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  • Grey literature (unpublished literature, reports or white papers from government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and private companies)
  • Statistics

Most resources on this guide can be used for all four research topics, but topic-specific resources are also included.
