The following problems are arranged in order of increasing difficulty so you should work them in the order given. Your search is to be conducted in the LCA file (the learning database). Since LCA is a static file, the number of answers that should be found are indicated in parentheses. Provide bibliographic information for each question. If there are more than 5 documents, you only need to provide the bibliographic information for the first and last answers. Submit your answers via Moodle as a pdf file using the convention: Assign4_YourlastnameFirstinitial_specific_index_searching.pdf.
