LIBRARY ASSIGNMENT

1.  What is your research topic?

2.  Background information & research questions

    3.  Search for sources in the library databases:

    4.  Document and annotate your sources using MLA citation

     

    Research Questions

    Start with your broad topic

    Brainstorm specific research questions.  Try asking questions such as Why?  Who?  How?  When?  Where?  In what ways?

    Look for broad questions that can be further divided into more narrow, specific questions.

    And continue to narrow your focus...

    Review your topic map.  Which questions are you most interested in?  Which are the best fit for your assignment?  Highlight keywords and phrases you can use to search for information on this topic.
