Research Process

The research process can look different for everyone, and may look different from project to project, but most will have a few common features:

  1. Begin with a question you want answered. What are you most interested in learning?
  2. Decide what type of information you need: do you need newspapers, books, or scholarly articles?
  3. Gather and evaluate information: are your sources current, reliable, applicable, and unbiased?
  4. Is your question answered? Do you need more (or different) information? Do you need to change your question?
  5. Repeat 1-4 until you're ready to use the information: make a decision, write a paper, present, etc.

Don't forget to ask a librarian for help!
