UUNI100 Student FYE Infographic Project Guide: Preparing to Do Research for Your Infographic

The third major assignment for UUNI 100 is to create an FYE Infographic. This guide will assist you through the process.

Before You Start Searching for Information

It is very likely you will find many sources on the topic you select. Selecting two from the first screen's worth is not the best way to proceed. Instead, before you start searching, think about these questions:

  1. Who is your audience?
  2. What type of information would they find interesting?
  3. Consider your topic.
  4. What aspects of it might be particularly interesting?
  5. How could you narrow it down when you start to search? (watch the short video below to learn more)

 

Select Your Search Topic

Search for Sources Efficiently

You will be doing research not just for this assignment, but for countless others at the University. You will save yourself lots of time and stress by learning the best way to go about searching. Before you access a database to start your research, watch the following short tutorials:

Keyword Searching Tutorial: While this uses the Libraries’ search tool rather than Academic Search Complete, the information presented applies equally to any database you search.

Working with Scholarly Article Tutorials: These let you check your knowledge as you complete the tutorials.

Part 1: What is a Scholarly Article

Part 2: Reading a Scholarly Article
