Use the TABS Across the Top of this Guide

Research Takes Time

  • Explore topics to find where your interest lies.  Start with course materials, conversations with other students in the class and, of course, your professor. Then browse reference sources and/or the open Web to begin your exploration and find ideas.
  • Discover more in depth.  Read what others have published in books or periodical articles that you could develop into a topic.
  • Develop and use a Search Strategy:
    • Once you have identified a topic, write it as a question.
    • Think of as many words as you can to describe your topic. Add more terms that you discover as you search.
  • Be flexible:  You may decide to modify your topic as you gain knowledge about your topic.
