Harvard Guide to Using Sources

An introduction to to the fundamentals of using sources in academic papers. Includes these sections:

Getting started with your research

Some tips:

1) Your challenge is NOT to find *something* on your topic, it's to find the most appropriate information–of the best quality–for your task! You won't necessarily use the first materials you find.

2) Choose a topic that's meaningful to you personally.  You'll do a better job.


3) Use Advanced Search for more control over your search.

Ask a Librarian

       

 

 

When Castleton librarians are unavailable, you will be chatting with a librarian from another academic institution.
