Getting started with your research

See the tabs above
to take you to starting places for 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. 

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

4)  Start your research early

  • to have time to find the best sources
  • to use interlibrary loan
  • to avoid feeling desperate and losing sleep!

5) If you find a good, relevant source, look at the references at the end for additional relevant material.
