Learn About Your Topic

Background information can help in several ways:

  • Identify keywords and phrases related to your research topic
  • Narrow and focus your research question 

It can sometimes be gathered by searching Google. However, subject encyclopedias are a great way to get some background information and they're typically written by experts in the field. Note: always check with your professor to determine if this source type is permitted for the assignment.
