Also, there is a wealth of information for and against the Japanese-American internment.Therefore, I can do an in-depth research of the topic using many kinds of sources, and draw logical conclusions as well as fulfill the requirements satisfactorily for this course.s subject matter is history, and historical research papers are usually written with Chicago-Humanities documentation system. Japanese-American Internment during World War II (Spring 1999) More Examples: Lucy Burrows (Spring 2002) | Natalie Lauderdale (Spring 2002) A.
I also plan on finding secondary sources in magazines.
I remember one magazine article from the research paper I did in high school that was very helpful.
I have previously researched about this topic, but I would like to perform more in-depth, quality, college-level research and learn more about the complete situation.
I feel that this will be a challenge and I will learn a wealth of information.
The secondary sources that I plan on consulting are newspapers, magazines, books, and perhaps videos.
While taking Library Skills 127 last term I learned that it is possible to find and read newspaper issues from many years ago.I plan on consulting the library for newspaper articles from that time period.I am not sure if they would be considered secondary sources because they are authentic from that time period that the Japanese-Americans were being interned, but I know they will be helpful to me so I can see what people were reading in the newspapers about the incidents at that time.The site has become a walk-through memorial for the internment that occurred.By traveling to Tule Lake, I hope to see first hand what the living quarters were like as well as how desolate the camps were.Both the COCC Library catalog and the whole library homepage are very helpful to me in leading me to sources.Finally, if possible, I would like to actually travel to Tule Lake, California, which is the site of a former concentration camp during World War II.I have found that there are numerous books written about the Japanese-American internment during World War II.I plan on consulting books for the majority of the information that I need for reasons why such actions were taken against the Japanese-Americans as well as information on reimbursement/apologies for the internment.I plan on using the skills that I learned in Library Skills 127 for research.In fact, I have already ordered a book through the interlibrary loan system and I have found more that I would like to order.
