Finding Background Information on a Topic

Last Updated: Aug 09, 2017 05:20PM CDT

Before you begin your preliminary research, it is necessary to reflect on where you ultimately want to go with the research.  Consider these questions to get started:

  • What is your purpose or goal with this research?
  • What do you already know about the area or field?
  • What do you need to know about the area or field?
  • Where might you start your preliminary research?

Use these Pre-Search Materials or the Library Search to find background information for your topic:
