In this age of information overload, it can be hard to know where to find good information that you can trust. If you’re doing research for an important project, report, or proposal, how do you find information that you can count on? Find out how to research any topic using a number of different tools. Start with basic techniques, such as reading, memory recall, note-taking, and planning. Create different kinds of outlines for different stages of your project, and how to move from the outline to actual writing, editing, and polishing. Most importantly, learn how to use all kinds of sources, including a library’s Dewey Decimal System, journals, and the Internet. After you complete this course, you’ll be ready to find reliable information on any topic, and turn that information into a compelling, accurate piece of writing.
