Item Open AccessArcher Library Award 2023 - Reflective Essay (University of Regina Library, 2023-01) Fischer, GraceThe Fall 2022 semester started my second year as an English Honours student at the University of Regina. Each 200-level course I chose came with various new challenges compared to the previous year. One crucial challenge I experienced was finding scholarly sources for my english, politics, and criminology research papers. At the beginning of the fall semester, I needed to learn how to search for specific topics appropriately, and I was unaware of the different databases for each subject. However, I decided to make an appointment with a librarian to see if they would be able to point me in the right direction when it came to using the library’s resources. The librarian was extremely helpful and showed me two specific databases that provided scholarly articles in politics and criminology. Because of his help, I found scholarly sources for my upcoming English research paper on “Lanval” by Marie de France.
