Once you understand the assignment... 

 Where do you start? Here are some tips:

  • Get some ideas from your classmates.
  • Check an online encyclopedia like CREDO Reference for ideas and concepts.
  • Seek assistance at the University Writing Commons located on the first floor of the Library.
  • Do some exploratory searches in Summon. Look at the abstracts or summaries of articles that interest you for ideas of keywords and topics.
  • If you still need help, do not hesitate to talk with your professor or a reference librarian.
