Getting Started With Research @ FC Library

How to Use this Guide

Welcome to Research 101

I'm Jill, one of your FC librarians. This guide has been developed to give you an overview of the research process and to provide guidance as you work on your research assignment. If you need ideas on what to explore for your next research paper, jump to the Topic Ideas section. If you already have a research topic and aren't sure where to find the information you need, hop on over to the Accessing Library Sources or Databases vs. Google sections. Tips are given in bite-sized chunks, so feel free to grab what you need and go.

If you have any questions or comments along the way, please don't hesitate to contact me or any of the other librarians in the Ask a Librarian section. We look forward to chatting with you!
