Building your search

Research can help fill in your information gaps by:

  • Providing you with an overview, if you are new to a topic 
  • Providing you with background information to inform what you already know 
  • Helping you make connections between information and your ideas 
  • Broadening your perspective by making you aware of a range of views 
  • Offering context (historical or current) 

Once you have completed your research, you should have enough quality resources, from a variety of sources, to write your assignment.
