    Tips:
    • there may be current books on your topic in the school library - make sure to check the OPAC
    • make sure to cite your sources as you do your research (all articles have MLA citations at the bottom for you!)
    • think about your keywords as you search - you may find better results using terms like "binge-eating" or "overeating" instead of just "food addiction" - talk to your Health teacher who can suggest terms
    • you can begin by gathering articles that have relevant information by emailing them to yourself - then read them more closely at a later date
    • please ask Ms.Herz for username/password to access the Teen Health & Wellness database remotely
