Library Research

From University of British Columbia (UBC LEAP)

The Research Process

Begin to understand the broader topic and identify context and sub-topics. 

This is the step where you read, read, read! 

  • Take notes as you go. 
  • E-mail articles and webpage URLs to yourself.
  • Keep identifying related keywords or specialized terms.
