Before you begin your research, it is helpful to have a clear understanding of the assignment.  

  • How long is the speech?
  • How many sources?
  • What kinds of sources?

If you have questions about your assignment, be sure to ask your professor for help before starting your research. Your professor is the person who created the assignment, so they are the person who can explain exactly what they want you to accomplish with it.

Once you understand the assignment, you are ready to begin.  Your librarians are ready and happy to assist you through the research process.
