Starting Your Research

Starting Your Research

This guide is intended to provide a brief overview of what the research process looks like, what resources Bortz Library has to offer, and how students can start finding the different types of resources that they need for their classes. This is not a comprehensive guide to college-level research, but it is meant to provide a general overview. Please contact us if you have any questions at all!

You may go through these steps several times for one research project - and remember, librarians are here to help you at any time!
