Google and Wikipedia DO NOT EQUAL Research

Research is an easy 6 step process (We call it THE BIG 6).   Follow the step for an outstanding project!

  1. Define your task
    • Know what is being asked of you
    • List out all your requirements
    • Identify what information you will need (5WH - Who, What, When, Where, Why and How)
    • Know other terms you may need to search under
  2. Seek your Information
    • Brainstorm Ideas
    • Use the Pathfinders provided for you
    • Know the difference between paraphrasing, quoting and summarizing
  3. Locate and Access your information
    1. Can you locate the Pathfinder and Library web page?
    2. Do you have all the usernames and passwords you may need if you are off campus?
  4. USE your information
    • Have you found information to answer the 5WH question?  (Who, What, When, Where, Why and How)
    • Have you cited every source that you have used?
  5. Organize your information
    • Do you have enough information?
    • If not, can you enter a search that will give specific information for what you are missing?
  6. Evaluate your information
    • Have someone who has not done any research on the topic review your paper/presentation to make sure it makes sense and answers all the questions asked.
