Read the PDF underneath this text titled "Research and Stuff: Strategies for the Beginning Academic Researcher" in order to glean how each step is a building block upon the previous step. This PDF will refer you to other sections of this Library Guide and the tutorials within it so that you can see how to apply different tools at the appropriate time during your research.
