You've been asked to develop a conceptual design for temporary emergency cold weather protection that will help reduce the health and safety risk for individuals sleeping outside in extreme cold conditions and during snow storms.
You will need to base your design decisions on credible information sources:
Library resources and other academic resources will help you provide evidence for why your design is a good design
It isn't just because you think it's a good design, or an article in the Toronto Star indicates it is a good design, there is evidence to show that it is a good design
Some online sources, such as Wikipedia and web sites, are a great place to start looking for background information, but you don't want to stop there
Examples of good evidence are resources like standards, scholarly or engineering trade journal articles, and academic books - many of which you can find using the library's web site
Not all the resources you need will be available online or in the library, so make sure before you use a resource for you project, you evaluate it to determine whether or not it is appropriate to use. If you need help finding evidence for your design, ask us!:
