Learn the Library Session D: Hunting for information - Search like a pro!
Sharpening your search skills by exploring your research needs. Searching as an iterative and nonlinear process.
What are my information needs?
What will be your project output?
- Research essay? Lab report? Blog? Opinion piece? Oral presentation?
Has your professor asked for scholarly sources? How many?
- If they have, you need to look in the library, not necessarily on Google.
Do you need to write or present from a certain position and need evidence to support your claims? Or do you need sources to inform your topic?
Are you completely new to your topic and don't know anything about it?
