Where can I find information about information security?
Last Updated: May 15, 2023     Views: 154

For this GEN/201 assignment, you have been asked to evaluate two sources from at least two databases in the University Library. EBSCOhost and ProQuest are the most popular databases in the University Library. Another resource to try is Opposing Viewpoints in Context. All three of these can be found on the library homepage under the Research Databases heading in the middle of the page.

We suggest searching in Opposing Viewpoints in Context first. Copy and paste this search into the search box:

information security

This will result in an overview of the topic and limiters immediately below with different types of content, such as Viewpoints for pro/con type articles, Magazines, or Reference. Once a content type is selected, you can click on the Subjects box on the right side of the page to further narrow results.

Also, try these searches separately:

information security AND privacy

information security AND computing

You can try similar searches in both EBSCOhost and ProQuest. Keep in mind that this will typically result in many articles. You can use the limiters on the left to help narrow the results.

Tip: as you type information security in the search box, suggested topics will be listed in a drop-down menu from the search box. You can scroll down and select one to see those results. 

This will get you started on the topic, but to take your search to the next level, check out our guides:
