This guide will help you to find and use the sources you need to succeed in your first- and second-year research assignments. For help with doing research on a particular topic or in your major, check out our Subject Guides.
Included in this guide are resources for:
selecting a topic that is timely and interesting to you
finding the sources you need to inform and/or persuade your audience
citing your sources and avoiding plagiarism
Please do not hesitate to contact your campus librarian for more help. You can also click on the blue ASK a Librarian tab on the right side of the guide (and on almost every University Libraries webpage) to chat with a Penn State librarian or email a question.
