A Tip from your Librarian...
Always remember, research is just strategic exploration and you are not searching for one right answer. Keep your mind open and curious, and be aware that there are many different resources, viewpoints, and ways to frame information that can result in different reports about a similar topic. Your task is to find reliable and factual information that you will piece together to create a story or picture about the issue you have chosen to research. Citing reliable sources is a way to show your readers that you are providing information that is based on more than just your own personal opinion while still putting the pieces together yourself.
