You have listened to the Serial podcast, you have talked with your classmates and your professor about the case, and you have likely already formed an initial opinion about the culpability of Adnan Syed. Now you need to demonstrate your understanding of the arguments on both sides. Furthermore, you have to locate and cite credible sources in order to make and support your own strong claim about the case.
This guide will help you negotiate the various types and sources of information you are likely to encounter as you conduct your research. It will also help you determine the relative credibility of that information and provide advice you can continue to apply as an Alvernia student and an informed citizen. Of course, there will always be more to learn, so please be sure to ask an Alvernia librarian the next time you have a question.
