Use the library databases to retrieve an article from the Course Theme Reading List on the topic you selected last week. If you are considering a new topic, confirm your choice with your professor. Once you retrieve the article, print it or save a local copy of the full text article to your hard drive so that you can refer to the contents of the article offline.

For each part of the assignment, follow the instructions provided. When you are finished, save the document as <your last name.Wk2 Summary Assignment> and submit it to the Dropbox by the end of the week.
