Need to Pick a Topic for Your Research Paper?
Studies say these are the top 2 most difficult things in doing research: 1) Picking a Topic; 2) Choosing Keywords. If you're having trouble picking a topic, go to the library's Database List http://libguides.grossmont.edu/databases and click on "Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center." Once you're in that database, from the black menu bar, find "Browse Issues." Look at the issues and find a topic that excites you. Click on the topic link and you'll find lots of resources all in one place: Featured Viewpoints, Academic Journals, Statistics and Images. For the next post, we'll deal with "Choosing Keywords."
