    +Assignment and research approach

    Sometimes, a structured approach to research can help to organize ideas and the way you think about information sources:  

    1. Explore topic basics & primary sources (the open web)
    2. Background (library catalog: books)
    3. Current research (library databases: journal articles)
    4. Support your argument (source citation)
    5. Drafts & revisions (research librarians, writing center)
