Research Tips

Read Your Assignment 

Take the time to read over your assignment carefully.  Take notice of the length, word count needed, topic guidelines, and resources required. 

Narrowing your topic 

If you choose a broad topic, such as education, try to narrow it down further.  For example:  home schooling, college costs, Ivy Leagues v Public Universities. 

Use Boolean Searches 

When using the databases, remember to use Boolean operators. These are And, Or, Not.  It is another way to narrow your results.  For example: 

Red Tide and Florida, Red Tide not Florida 

Use Library Resources 

Using credible library resources, either books, e-resources, or streaming video, will help you with your research paper.  It is much easier to find credible information using Library resources than it is to search the internet. While you may find information on your topic through an Internet search, it will be up to you to determine the validity of the information.  Instructors will expect your resources to be of a scholarly nature. 

Citing Your Work 

Remember you must cite your work.  Giving proper credit to the sources you used is vital.  Many students lose points through improper citation or no citations.   

Your librarian is here to help you with all of your research and citation needs.

Citing Guide

Documenting your research: Avoid plagiarism!

  • Always cite the sources you use, even if you "paraphrase" (put it into your own words.)
  • If you copy+paste the citation provided in the database's "Citation Tool", check the rules and CORRECT any mistakes.
  • When in doubt... ask a librarian!
