Research Tips and Tricks

This Tips and Tricks research guide provides information on how to perform a search, ranging from how to choose what type of search to make, how to string key words together, and what to do with texts once you've found them.

Why should I care about evaluating resources?

We all want to be taken seriously, right? Well, since sources speak with us (not for us), we want to ensure our sources are reliable. 

If your reader can't trust your sources, can they trust anything you say?

You want your audience to believe you, trust you, and admire your detailed research.

The better your research, the smarter you look!
