Research Help

The ultimate goal of research is to find evidence to support your ideas about an issue or problem. Think about research as becoming involved in a conversation. This conversation, however, includes "speakers" that are documents found in books, articles and/or on the World Wide Web. Some of the speakers may be long dead, some are still actively participating and some may not even be alive yet!
