Has an instructor asked you to use research for a class assignment such as an essay or presentation? Research for college-level assignments often requires more than quickly finding something from a website. You will need quality sources from reliable authors or organizations providing accurate and often timely information on specific topics. It's a lot to think about! Instead of trying to figure out which websites might offer acceptable sources, try using a library resource! Use a link in the Library Resources box or a Research Guide focused on specific subjects or sources to make your research easier.
