The Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue University
Help using sources in your writing
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.
