Group Podcast Project: Bibliography

For this assignment, you need a minimum of ten scholarly sources to support the creation of your podcast. At least five must be scholarly books and at least five must be either peer-reviewed journal articles or chapters from edited volumes. Rod Library provides access to a multitude of sources you might find useful for this project. 

Pre-(Re)search

You should not only locate sources about your artist and your selected artwork. You need to understand the period in which your artist made this work and the larger themes or concepts related to this work. This means starting by gathering sources that help you understand what you should be searching for in the first place. These sources will not show up in your bibliography but will inform your locating of the sources that will. 

Some things to look for 

  • is there an entry on your artist
  • the medium they used
  • the movement of which they were a part

A regular open Google search can also be an okay entry point to gathering information for searching, but know not everything you find online will be reliable and most of it will not count towards your bibliography. Use advanced search strategies to narrow your Google search to make them more useful.
