Research in Five Steps: Home


Research projects can often feel intimidating and overwhelming. This approach is designed to minimize the anxiety by breaking the process down into (5) manageable steps which will be shared with you throughout the semester. The process builds off of each previous step and skipping any can lead to gaps in your research as well as potentially missing points from related assignments. The Librarians are eager to assist you with your project, if you have any questions throughout this course please use any of the contact methods provided on this page.
