Getting Started

Before you begin searching for information, make sure you understand your topic and what you don't know.

  1. Write down what you already know about the topic and what you need to find out.
  2. Find dictionaries, encyclopedias for an overview of your topic.
  3. Find text books to broaden your knowledge of your topic and to identify keywords.
  4. Find academic journal articles for detailed arguments about specific points.
