I'm looking for a critical analysis of X, and have tried searching for A, B, and C in databases D, E, and F, and have come up completely blank apart from a single copy of a book in WorldCat at a library in Nunavit that's been checked out for 6 months (this actually happened to me once), and an IEEE article that costs $800 per copy.
Shit. You're right. Can I research this, and get back to you in a day or two?
Questions regarding homework assignments are more than welcome, provided that they:
Briefly explain the problem you are trying to solve — do not post your entire assignment verbatim.
Explain what you have tried thus far, and where you are stuck (preferably with code examples)
Don't ask for 'complete' solutions to the problem — we're not here to do your homework for you.
