The library is a great resource and probably one of the most important in your pursuit of scholarship and your degree. Libraries of all types have
changed; even brick and mortar libraries allow for searching and reserving resources online. But what about a library that exists completely in
“cyberspace”—that is, one you can only access online? This Application Assignment will familiarize you with the Walden Library and how to download
articles from its databases.
After reviewing the study notes in this week’s Learning Resources, download two peer-reviewed articles to use for this assignment.
The assignment: (2–3 pages)
Provide an APA citation and brief summary for each of the two peer-reviewed articles you selected
Explain two ways that you evaluated the two articles you downloaded to ensure the information within them is, in fact, reliable and accurate.
Explain how you know that the two articles you downloaded are, in fact, from peer-reviewed journals.
Write a paragraph explaining the importance, to a scholar-practitioner, of peer review of scholarly journals.
Include in your explanation the importance of peer-reviewed articles to a scholar-practitioner in your area(s) of interest.
Support your Application Assignment with specific references to all resources used in its preparation. You are asked to provide a reference list for all
resources, including those in the Learning Resources for this course.
Submit your assignment by Day 7.
