Getting Started with the Research Process

Whether you are writing your first research paper for your first college class, or writing the last one of your college career- the research process can seem daunting. There is a lot to it. But learning how to research properly is one of the best, most transferable skills. It is absolutely, always worth the effort. These are just steps to help get you started on the research journey. As you have questions, don't hesitate to e-mail me directly or use the QuestionPoint (Ask-a-Librarian) feature, or stop by my desk in the Learning Center.
