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.

Creating a Bibliography

No research project is complete without a bibliography -- if you don't have sources to add to a bibliography, you didn't do your research! EasyBib is a tool that can make creating a bibliography a snap -- use our Powerpoint to get started. 

You may also want to refer to Purdue's OWL website when formatting your paper and citing sources -- their website can help you with MLA, APA, or Chicago citation. Make sure that you know what citation style your teacher is looking for before getting started!
