Be Organized!

Before you do anything, figure out how you will organize your research. Some suggestions:

Concept Mapping is a great way to organize your thoughts and map out ideas.

Dropbox is a cloud based storage solution.  You can access your files anywhere (as long as you have an internet connection).  First 2GB free!

EndNote is a bibliographic citation management software. 

Google Docs can be used to store notes and ideas, to create a presentation, and to share documents - and it can be accessed wherever you have an internet connection.

Zotero is a free open-source citation management tool that lets you save articles, websites, and other materials.  There are useful tutorials for getting starting and maximizing this resource.  Zotero needs to be installed on your computer. 

Citations help you find information and images again - check out the UNCC citation guide HERE.

web resources

Be critical and thoughtful about the sources you use.  Here are some tips on evaluating what you find on the web:

Reference Resources

Dictionaries & Encyclopedias: Good for quick reference and starting research.  Encyclopedias are written by leading scholars and often have bibliographies for further reading and research.


Tips for finding things

You can search by title, author, keyword, subject, or journal title.  Take note of the keywords and subject headings for the things you find that are useful - this will give you specific search terms to use as you continue with your research.
