- The library has a great tool to help you keep your research assignments on track: the Assignment Calculator. Use it to help you plan your strategy for doing your best work on time.
- Looking for a topic? Or, have a topic that needs to be refined into a great research question? This is the moment to do some background research. Read around to generate ideas about subtopics, controversial issues, key players, and current events in the field you're researching. Use the encyclopedia or other reference books! Or try some quick-and-dirty searches in wikipedia or google -- this reading probably won't make it into your final draft, but will help you make good choices about which direction to take your project.
- What information will you need to research your topic? And where will you look for that info?
- Use the library's databases for company and industry information. This guide provides more detailed database suggestions on the other pages.
- Use articles from ProQuest and Business Source Complete to learn about the history, media coverage, and analysis of your topic. Articles are also a rich source for data and company information that may not be available anywhere else.
- Go deeper with books. Use the library catalog to search for print & electronic books, or use Ebrary for access to our collection of electronic books (you'll need to download the ebook reader the first time you use Ebrary).
