Library Research
Overview

This guide outlines one approach to finding secondary sources for a research-based scholarly paper in English. Similar approaches may work for other fields, and other approaches certainly work for English, but this is one productive approach to combining the many resources available to students conducting scholarly research in the field.

Please note what this approach does not cover: it does not address reference sources, the use of theoretical or tertiary sources, or the use of primary source texts. All of these may be appropriate or required parts of the research process for a given assignment in English.
