Research Reminders

A few, final things about research:
  • Be patient. Research takes time. You will not find everything you need on the first try or in the first database.
  • If you don't find many sources when you search a database, try changing your search words. Synonyms or related words will help you find more information.
  • Ask a librarian if you need help!
