Start Your Research: Explore Broadly
Starting your research paper can be a daunting task. Though each assignment will vary, exploring your topic and setting up a plan is an important early step. In this session we will cover the basics of a research strategy to get you started.
Use One Good Source to Find Others
Got one or two really good sources but need more for your project or paper? Learn to use a source you already have to find additional useful sources. We'll explore using tools like Google Scholar, Web of Science and even Wikipedia.
