Question:

Can you help me find a book about racism in America? I am writing a paper.

Rebekkah L.
Answer:

Of course! First, since that is a pretty broad topic, let's work to narrow it down a bit. Are you looking for resources that depict a certain time period such as the Civil War, Jim Crow, or the 21st century? After we narrow down your topic we can find a resource using your school or local library's website. We can start with a keyword search for general results and narrow down our search using tools such as search filters and hyperlinked subject headings.

Question:

My teacher said we have to use peer-reviewed articles for this paper. What are those and how do I find them?

Rebekkah L.
Answer:

The term "peer-reviewed" refers to a process the article had to go through before being published. A peer-reviewed article was read, reviewed, and perhaps edited by other professionals in the industry (i.e., nursing, engineering) before it was published. This ensures that the article has the most accurate information available. In order to find an article, we need to see what databases your school provides you access to. This list is usually available on the library website. If you cannot access other databases, Google Scholar is a great alternative. In both cases, there are ways to narrow down your search to only show peer-reviewed results.

Question:

What is the difference between Modern and Contemporary art?

Rebekkah L.
Answer:

Modern art is artwork that was created from circa 1880 to 1960. It is often associated as a time of new schools of art such as Surrealism, Dadaism, and Modernism. With Modern art, there was a large push to step away from representational art and move towards depicting thoughts and emotions. Contemporary art is any artwork that was created after the 1960s/70s and into the present. Artwork created today is contemporary art. Contemporary art often borrows from all schools of art and is less restricted by media and conventional rules.
