RESEARCH ASSISTANCE: Research Process

Trust the Process

Keep in mind that research is an iterative, non-linear, sometimes messy process.

You will probably narrow and redefine your research topic along the way.

Begin by reading encyclopedia articles either in print or on the Internet to familiarize yourself with the topic.

Now that you are more familiar with your research topic, you are ready to begin exploring the library's catalog and databases.
