    Hello Physics V,

    Lovely to see you over in Lindsay today!  As you recall, a great place to locate anchoring background information is the Gale Virtual Reference Collection.  From here, and to meet the scholarly journal component of the assignment, recommended are both Ebsco’s – Academic Search and the Proquest digital periodical collection.  Consider using the limiters we discussed in class to retrieve articles: with specific subjects, that are peer-reviewed, are available full-text and/or fall within the 2010-2014 date range.   As always, if you have any research question(s) {or feedback}, please be in touch! Ms. Sanborn
