I'm interested in the topic Electronic Resources vs. Paperbook


Ms. Stephanie has suggested we do a final paper. I don't have a clue how to get started. Will you give me some suggestions on the very 1st step? Please!

We recommend you start by scanning the literature to see if there is information on your topic.  This will also be a good way for you to begin narrowing your topic as electronic resources as compared to print resources is a bit too broad a topic to cover completely into a few pages.  You might consider after doing some research, narrowing your topic to a discussion of reading comprehension and print versus electronic resources.  You might consider narrowing the topic even further by looking at electronic versus print textbooks and student learning. 

We recommend you begin your research in the databases.  You may access these databases by going to the all purpose libguide at  Next choose the Articles tab.  Next choose the database Academic Search Complete.  You will be asked to sign in using your six digit student ID and the first part of your Brenau email address.  Then narrow your search by clicking on the full text and the scholarly (peer reviewed) buttons below the search bar.  Then enter your search terms.  I used the terms Learning AND Electronic Textbooks and I got some good results such as "Electronic versus traditional print textbooks: A comparison study on the influence of university students' learning."
