A continuation of an earlier section of the course, students will delve into a range of quality sources to find interdisciplinary research, data sets, grey literature and statistics from trustworthy, online resources. Students will work in pairs to identify relevant databases and other resources to answer real work case study questions. Students will take home an annotated list of over 200 resources for future references.

Learning Objectives:
