Workshop 2: Research

  • Be aware that this can often be the most time-consuming stage of assignment writing.
  • Find appropriate sources for your assignments and use Library Resource Guides, search engines and databases.
  • Keep a record of quotes, paraphrases and your own ideas.
  • Further, refine your plan as you continue to research.

Workshop 3: Reference
