In your paper, you should


·  Identify at least three sources of information on your topic found on the web. You may use only search engines if you wish, or you may also use some of the web resources on the library's databases and indexes pages. The three sources must have differing points of view. They may be for differing audiences, or have differing facts, or have differing biases-but they must represent your topic from different perspectives.


·  Summarize each site in as full a manner as you can. Check out the web page set up by Cynthia Burton for more ideas on internal analysis of a website. Who is the intended audience? What is the purpose of this site? Answer in as much detail as you can.


·  Compare the potential uses of the three sites for an undergraduate student at Allegheny College. Would such a student (you!) need more information than these sites provide in order to write a paper on this topic? From what you know at this time, are there other publications or organizations where you might find out more?
