Starting Your Research Print Page

Librarian's Research Tips:

Start with some background reading. While you may already know something about the topic you are researching for this class, you may not know how or why people are using it in the business world or what other keywords or terms are associated with it. 

Background reading can help you answer these questions and identify additional search terms.

After you have completed your background reading and developed a good list of keywords, you can move onto finding Journal and/or Newspaper Articles or locating information on the web.
