Allow this guide to assist in your research.  The menu buttons at the left will help navigate you through books, magazines, newspapers, scholarly journals, open web sites, and more as you work through the research process.  

Before you get started, think about your topic.  What questions can be asked about your topic?  What are some ramifications of your topic?  Think about synonyms, antonyms, and other related terms for your topic, as well as related individuals, groups, etc.  They can all form an important part of your search.  Remember, research is cyclical--not a straight line!  These are general steps in the research process; but, good research can involve returning back to certain points and following multiple trails. 

Ms. McGinnis, Ms. Moore, and I are here to help you find the information that you need--and we love doing so!
