Welcome to the Research Help Guide

Before you get started on your assignment, consider the following questions.

  1. What is my type of assignment (Presentation, Research Paper, Opinion Paper, Group Project)?
  2. Did my professor give instructions?
  3. Do I have a required number of sources that I have to use?
  4. Did my professor tell me what types of sources are required - newspaper articles, books, scholarly articles, primary sources?
  5. Did your professor suggest a specific database or resource that I have to search?
