Global Studies - Religions Research Project (Cruz/Gulinski): Research Question & Note-Taking

Workflow

Step 1: Background Research

Search for an article on your religion using Britannica School. You can access this database by clicking the Britannica link below.

Once you have found an article on your religion, use the Note-taking Worksheet (link below) to take notes on that source as well as the information needed to cite that source (i.e. author, title, etc.).

Step 2: Develop a Research Question

The worksheet below was used in class to help you develop a research question for this project. 

TIP: It is perfectly acceptable to revise your research question as you review more sources. Perhaps you will have to narrow or broaden your question because you are not finding enough relevant information in sources.

Step 3: Search for Sources, READ, and Take Notes

Use the tabs at the top of this LibGuide to search for sources within the Library databases and books.

Once you have found a source that offers information you're looking for, take notes on that source as well as the information needed to cite that source (i.e. author, title, etc.) using the worksheet linked in Step 1 above.
