Part 3: Scavenger Hunt After completing the reading, go on Mercy’s Library page and find one source (book, article or documentary from any Mercy database) which addresses the topic/argument from the reading. In other words, now that you’ve completed the reading, if asked to do more research on the topic, where would you start? Find a source through the Mercy Library page which also talks about the topic presented in the reading.
While you do not have to read that source, you must A) write down the source in proper MLA, APA or Chicago format and B) copy and paste a screen capture into your homework submission of the browser window with the source (see example below). Every computer has a different way to take a screen capture, follow your PC or Macs OSs instructions found in your help menu. C) write two to three sentences about what this source is and how it relates to the reading.
