Searching for Sources

An important step when you start searching for sources is figuring out your search strategy. This usually involves thinking of the best search words or keywords to use.

It's also useful to know where to search for information, such as the library website or online. This will depend on your assignment requirements and the types of sources you are allowed to use for your assignment.

Once you find sources, it's also important to evaluate them to ensure that you are using credible and reliable sources to support your research topic/question.
