Quick Tips

    *  Evaluate your sources. Don't assume everything you find is true, accurate or timely.
    * Keep track of the sources you find so you can document them accurately in your papers.
    * If you don't get results using one approach, try another. Do not assume that nothing exists on the topic.
    * Not everything is in the computer.
    * Ask for help from a librarian if you get stuck or confused.
    * Don't put all of your research off until the last possible moment. It won't be much fun.
