A key source of information for this project will be documents produced by the City of Calgary and contracted consulting firms about Nose Hill and Dale Hodges Park.
The best way to locate this information is to conduct a targeted Google search of the City of Calgary website
Example: "nose hill park" design site:calgary.ca
This search will only find documents hosted on the City's website. Quotation marks indicate you want "nose hill park" to be searched as an exact phrase
To find documents where a particular search word/phrase is in the title, add allinttile: to your search
Example: allintitle:"nose hill" site:calgary.ca
Additional Tip - You may find city documents relating to other parks like Fish Creek helpful.
Scholarly journal articles are another important source of information for your report. While there are very few scholarly articles that specifically talk about Nose Hill or Dale Hodges Parks, articles that discuss similar projects and larger issues around urban park design, conservation issues, and management can provide important context and highlight trends and best practices.
With their focus on scientific research, Environment Complete and Scopus are useful tools for finding scholarly articles in this area.
LibrarySearch is another useful tool that searches across subject areas and includes not just articles, but books, dissertations, trade journals and more. Use limits like Resource Type and Creation Date to make the results list more manageable.
