This Library guide is designed as a one-stop shopping place where you can find everything you need to do well on your paper.
Write an argumentative style paper about any topic you choose. To do well, you will want to approach research as a process, with different stages. Below is a generic research plan.
1) Browse. Spend some time choosing a unique topic that's interesting to you.
2) Start general. Search reference sources (print and online) for facts and statistics
3) Get specific. Find circulating books for more depth, and use articles from magazines and journals for current and very specific information.
Feel free to contact any of the librarians for additional help with your research.
