Research Process

Research is a process. It begins with a question and can end with a simple answer. Academic research usually ends with a paper, a presentation, or a demonstration of what was learned.

There are many different models of the research process, but they tend to differ only in their degree of complexity. The important thing for students to learn is that research can and should be broken down into steps. If the student gets "stuck" the solution is often to back up a step. For example, a student who may be having a hard time locating information may benefit from backing up and defining his or her topic more precisely.

Effective research requires a full range of Information Literacy skills, from finding and evaluating information to synthesizing and presenting information. Doing frequent research assignments, in many different classes, is the best way to develop a student's Library Literacy skills.
