This is a generic guide to help students with research projects and to learn how to navigate through the wonderful collection of Library resources.

Level Up Your Research Skills!

This semester is all about becoming a research rockstar! You'll be building three key skills:

  • Finding the Good Stuff: Learn how to spot reliable sources for your projects.
  • Thinking Like a Detective: Uncover the truth behind information and analyze its value.
  • Developing Your Own Voice: Use research to build strong arguments and express your ideas clearly.

This guide will be your partner throughout your research journey. It's broken down into easy-to-follow steps, helping you find the best information at every stage.

Ready to Dive Deeper? Let's Go!

By the end, you'll have a solid understanding of your topic and the confidence to:

  • Explore different viewpoints: Find sources that support and challenge your ideas.
  • Become an information detective: Understand how information is created and used.
  • Use sources ethically: Learn proper citation methods to give credit where it's due.

Stuck? No Problem!

We have librarians on standby to answer your questions. Look for the "Ask a Librarian" box on each page.

Get ready for an exciting research adventure!

Think About Your Research Project

Assignment Mission Briefing!

Before you blast off on your research adventure, make sure you get your mission briefing from your instructor. This will tell you exactly what you need to do for your research assignment.

What's in the Briefing?

  • Mission Length: How long should your research paper be? (Think: word count)
  • Source Squad Size: How many reliable sources will you need to find for your Works Cited page? (Remember, alphabetical order is key!)
  • Mission Timeline: When's blast-off (the due date), and are there any checkpoints (smaller deadlines) along the way?
  • Mission Objectives: Are there any specific topics your instructor wants you to explore, or can you choose your own?

Pro Tip: Read the briefing carefully! It has all the info you need to complete your mission successfully.
