START EARLY! It's likely you'll need to request materials from SUMMIT and via Tipasa, so you want to allow time for materials to arrive. [Note that SUMMIT items have a check-out period of six weeks.]
Seek out a variety of sources: books, essays in books, journal articles.
Use a variety of search tools: Primo, multiple databases, digital document and image collections, sometimes even Google Scholar.
Keep careful notes on all of your sources. If an online knowledge management tool like Zotero or RefWorks is not for you, make sure that any system that you do use is thorough.
Have questions? Make an appointment with Katy! Quick questions can be answered via email; more in-depth questions can be handled best with an appointment.
