The Research Process

 

So you just got assigned a research project ... How do you know where to begin? Research projects, essays, or anything that requires citing sources can be intimidating, but we are here to help.

Your job is to stay calm, know you can do it, hang in there and go step by step!

The Research Process Calculator is a handy free tool offered by Minitex -- it can help you plan your project and let you know the steps that you should be taking along the way.

Types of Sources

The library catalog lists a variety of materials available for your use. Depending on the type of project, you might want to use a podcast, a book, a website, or any of the other many types of sources out there. Make sure that you understand what your teacher considers appropriate source material prior to citing!
