Research Strategy

Begin your research by reading some background information about your topic. 

Once you have studied the background of your topic, find primary and secondary sources (books and articles) with which to write your paper.

Tip: Find secondary sources related to your topic before looking for primary sources. See what primary sources were used by the authors of the secondary sources, and then try to find those primary sources.

Determine other types of primary sources to use:

  • Find digitized primary source collections on the web
  • Find published primary sources using the online library catalog (Library Search).

Schedule a Research Appointment

I highly recommend meeting with a research librarian to discuss your research paper topic and how to find great primary and secondary sources for your paper. Schedule a research appointment and choose a time that works for you.
