Need to do some research? Where should you get your information?
Think about research like preparing a meal. How would you like it if someone plopped a plain potato on your plate and offered that to you for dinner? The same holds true if you only use one resource for your research paper or speech. Just as preparing a meal means combining different ingredients and foods together, so does research mean looking at different types of information and choosing the ones that work best for you.
Making pizza? Ingredients can include: pizza dough, tomato sauce, cheese, pepperoni, peppers, onions, mushrooms
Doing research? Sources can include: books, magazine or journal articles, websites, government documents, interviews, statistics
This LibGuide looks at these different types of information resources. Use the tabs above to learn about what the different types of information sources can offer you.
