Questions

Subject: Library and Information Science

Question:

You're doing a research project which requires using different resource types. What are some types of sources that would be acceptable to use in this project?

Answer:

If you can use primary sources that is always the best, yet may not always be available. Journal articles that have been peer-reviewed from well-respected journals are great sources of information, as are databases like PUBMED and JSTOR. Books, physical or digital, should be used whenever possible, especially those written by subject matter experts (professors, doctors, historians, policymakers, etc.) Websites like Wikipedia and Britannia should only be used as a jumping off point for basic informaion; in general, websites need to be reviewed with some skepticism and need to be evaluated for bias and factual accuracy.

Subject: Literature

Question:

What book (or series of books) have helped you though tough times?

Answer:

I know this is probably cliche, but I've always returned time and again to J.R.R. Tolkien's world of The Hobbit and The Lord of Rings. The LOTR series has some dark moments but the character arcs are thought out and varied; I do wish there were more female protagonists, yet understand why males play such a bigger role in this medieval war story. Ultimately though, this is an epic world and story about friendship, hope, and acceptance.

Subject: Folklore and Mythology

Question:

In what way(s) are our myths and folklore based off of historical experiences?

Answer:

Humans have always been storytellers who use past life experiences in folklore and mythology. For instance, Ares is the Greek of war (and the spirit of battle) and many warriors and kings would make sacrifices to Ares before going into battle to promote a positive outcome. Sacrifices were important to these individuals for they may have had personal, and certainly anecdotal, evidence of negative battle outcomes when Ares had not been appeased.
