Finding and Exploring Your Topic: Welcome to
Need Help With Your Topic? Just Ask!
Librarians can help you through the process of brainstorming, exploring, and narrowing/broadening your topic!
Stop by the Knowledge Commons desk on the second floor of the J. Willard Marriott Library, use our chat reference service, call us or email us -- we will be happy to help you in any way we can.
One of the more difficult parts of the research process can be finding and refining a topic. The resources in this guide are intended to help you to identify potential topics for your paper, to find resources to explain a little bit more about your topic, and then to narrow or broaden that topic to an appropriate size.
When choosing a topic, try to pick something that is of interest to you on a personal level. That will make researching your topic much more interesting!
