Q. Can you help me find information on dogs being a better animal than cats?


With a persuasive essay topic like this, you would want to find supporting evidence to persuade your audience that dogs are better than cats.

  • To find articles, start at the Online Resources page and click the General/Interdisciplinary category.
    • First, try Academic OneFile.  (Off-campus, you will need the 14-digit library number from your Baker ID or on the Login Assistance page in MyBaker.)  To find out what official heading is used to describe articles about your dog breed, use the Subject Guide Search and type in what you think it would be.  The subject heading will link to articles about the breed.
    • For more, try ProQuest - Search All
  • When searching the databases, there are a number of different search terms that you could use. Here are a few examples:

            - dogs vs. cat

            - dogs and cats and pets 

  • You may also want to search dog and cat in Gale Virtual Reference Library for facts and background information about each animal to persuade your audience that dogs are better than cats.

Thank you for using ASK US. For more information contact your campus Academic Resource Center.
