Welcome to Part 2:
You know what your topic is, now what?
Now that you've narrowed your topic and understand it, as well as having brainstormed a list of key words, you now have to figure out what kind of sources would best fit the needs of your research paper/project. It is usually recommended that you use different sources, such as books and on-line resources, but it will depend on your topic. If your topic is a current issue, there may not be good books written on that particular topic that are new enough. In this case, it would be better to use a database and find current articles.
