There are four steps to the research process:

  2. Gather Information 
  3. Use the Information
  4. Take time to reflect

The library has some helpful links to help guide you.



Getting Started


  • Make you sure you spell everything correctly!

  • Prepare a list of keywords or synonyms for the topic(s) that you are searching. For example, if you are focusing on "Sports Drinks" -- other terms might include "energy drinks", "Gatorade", etc...

  • Make sure you read the your assignment carefully. You can gain valuable insights into the research and paper writing process by understanding the expectations put forth in the assignment (length, sources required, etc...).
