A Research Process

Research brings together many discrete tasks which, while not strictly linear, can be identified among the categories represented by each page of this guide.

Starting - this page links to resources that can assist with defining a research question.  Reviewing background information can help you to articulate what you want to know more about.

Searching - search in subject & news databases to identify articles in scholarly journals and newspapers:

Evaluating - questions to ask about all your sources (this page authored by Josh Honn, English Librarian)

Writing - we all need help sometimes and there are places to get assistance with writing

Citing - research is a conversation conducted over time and space.  This page links to assistance and tools for acknowledging your sources, organizing what you find when searching, and formatting bibliographies and footnotes
