College Success: The Research Process

This guide is intended for all those studying CEP and related disciplines.

What is the research process?

When it comes to writing a research assignment in college, you will soon discover that it is not a straight line, but rather a circular process.  Compared to high school papers or research assignments, you must navigate academic databases, evaluate and synthesize information more deeply, and follow very specific citation guidelines.

This may seem like a lot to take in, but the Marydean Martin Library is here to help! The following module will guide you through some of the key points of the research process, as well as provide you with many resources to help you along the way.
