Finding a Book:
1- Research Question: Did Atlantis Exist?
2- Finding a Book: To find the book I found, I went to the Weber State Library website and clicked on the yellow book icon that represents the catalog search. In the search bar I typed Atlantis, after typing that a couple options popped up and the one that looked the best was #4 Digging through history: archaeology and religion from Atlantis to the Holocaust by Richard A. Freund.
Freund, R. A. (2012). Mysteries of Religion and Archaeology in the Search for Atlantis and Tarshish. In R. A. Freund, Digging through History: Archaeology and Religion from Atlantis to the Holocaust (pp. 35-101). Lanham: Rowman and Littlefield Publishers.
I chose to do APA 6th edition and cite the book section because I will only be using a chapter of the book due to the my research question.
1. Relevancy: This book is directly relevant because he is searching for historical clues to find it Atlantis existed.
2. Credibility: I think that this book is credible. The writer it an anthropologist who has studied things like this before. The book seems to be more of a research book than a popular book.
3. Currency: This book was written in 2012 which I think would be a good source for my topic. Since there is so much speculation on Atlantis I think this will be a good source since he will use technology and other things to find if Atlantis existed or not.
4. Objectivity: I was not able to find any bias when flipping through the book. This book reads as if it was written for research purposes.
