Hello! Welcome to the wide world of research. Over the years you have probably been taught a number of ways to do research. You may have even gotten confused, mixing one teacher’s requirements with another’s, leaving you with an inefficient way to gather data for assignments. This webpage is designed to help clarify the research process, allowing you to do research more quickly and effectively. There is general information about the library, what resources are available, how to properly cite resources, and basic essay formatting guidelines. Also, remember that your friendly media specialist is a wonderful resource for information about choosing a topic, how to research it well, and where to find the materials to do so. Feel free to ask for help. Good luck in your search.
