Starting Your Search

It can be intimidating to use the library and start a research project, but fear not we (the librarians and your professor) are here every step of the way.

  • It helps to start by writing a list of terms that you will use in your search.
  • Keep notes as you research, the terms you used, where you searched, what you found.
  • Once you have some terms do some background research to add more terms to your list.
  • Now you have a bit more information on your topic start looking for more in depth information.
  • Search for books, use the bibliography to find even more books or articles.
  • Use library databases to search for articles.
