Learn the Library Session C: Help! I need to form a research question!

Participants will learn how identify information gaps to create a research question, determine the depth and scope of the question, seek multiple perspectives in information gathering.

Topic

If you have a topic, try forming it into a question to better help articulate your thesis statement:

Topic Example: "emotions of theatre audiences"

Articulated Question: "What aspects of live performance art affect theatre goers the most and why?"

In other words...

WHAT is the research topic?

WHAT is your research question?

WHAT is your resulting hypothesis?
