This guide is your road map as you embark upon your research journey. Use it for guidance on key resources, research skills development, and practical how-to information on citation, reading and note-taking, and more.
You may find this guide particularly useful for your final manifesto assignment, which requires you to "meaningfully integrate a minimum of three secondary sources", as it provides guidance on creating a search strategy, locating and evaluating sources, and MLA citation style.
Navigating the guide
- Each page in this guide corresponds to a step in the research process, and contains a combination of resources, activities, and information for you to use when conducting research.
- Review the guide sequentially and then, as needed, revisit each section as you complete your research assignment.
