Start research with a search plan. Try these steps:
- Choose keywords that describe your topic or do a Subject Search for a person or topic.
- Decide what kinds of information you need to include - background information, articles, books, statistics. Different types of assignments require one or multiple types of information.
- Start research on your topic by using a "one search" tool like NUMA or Proquest Central. You can also search databases or book catalogs individually.
- Keep track of references you plan to use in your bibliography by using Zotero or another citation manager.
