This is a complex research topic that will take a little time to work through. Be prepared to set aside a couple of hours to research your question.
For this particular kind of question, you have a few article databases to start your search on dependence on technology. See below a list of starting databases from the library's Articles & Databases link on the website which you can use to find articles on your topic:
Academic Search Premier (EBSCOhost) - A general database with plenty of journals on technology
Opposing Viewpoints - Gale in Context - A reference database that can provide an overview of a topic and then provide links to other types of sources, including articles from newspapers, magazines, and journals, as well as audio and video clips.
JSTOR - includes 7 databases with full-text scholarly journal articles, covering a wide range of topics, including humanities, sciences, social sciences and more.
Once you pick a database, use a keyword search for your topic using a variety of synonym combinations. For example, you could try searching using the following keywords:
- "technology dependence"
- "technology dependency"
- "internet dependence" (more specific)
