This guide was created to gather subject-focused books, articles, and other resources to help you find what you need quickly. If you are new to the research process, the How Do I…? guide can help you develop and explore your research topic, learn more about searching the library catalog and databases, avoid plagiarism, and correctly cite your sources in your work.

If you need more help, check the Research, Tutoring, and Writing Support tab to:

  • Schedule a one-on-one research consultation with a librarian
  • Make an appointment or view the drop-in schedules at The Learning and Writing Center.
    • Writing consultations including proofreading, help with citation, advanced coursework and independent study, senior theses, and creative writing
    • Tutoring sessions with professional as well as trained peer tutors
    • Time management and study skills instruction
    • Support for academic accessibility

The research cycle

The research cycle is an iterative process, not a linear one. As you move from one step to another, you may go back to a previous step. For example, as you are searching, you may reconfigure your topic. As you analyze your sources, you may come up with more keywords for further searching. Don't be afraid to go back and refine your work - your research will be all the better for it.
