Drug Research Assignment

Drugs are ubiquitous in our society.  An understanding of drug action is especially important for those who plan to enter the health-care profession.  As part of your education, you need to learn how to research the drugs you will encounter.  For this assignment you must research a drug, either legal or illegal, prescription or nonprescription from a minimum of three sources.  The drug you choose must either be a chemical messenger or in some way influence the action of a chemical messenger.  Please check with Professor Chaney before doing your research so you know you have selected something appropriate (for example, antibiotics will not work for this assignment).

Research Consultation

Request an individual reference / research consultation with an NWACC librarian to get help with a research assignment. We can help you with refining your topic into a research questions, selecting the best places to search for sources, evaluating sources, creating citations, and more. Appointments are held during the library's open hours, as staffing is available. Consultations generally last 30 minutes.
