Before beginning your research, it's important to get the lay of the land and know what kind of sources are out there. Information is everywhere, and not all sources are created equal. Review the "Know Your Sources" Infographic below to look at the different sources out there. As you begin, you will want to start exploring your topic broadly. You will find several databases that provide great contextual information relevant to your topic (encyclopedias, etc.).
