Guiding you Through a Research Process


To use this guide, I recommend moving through the tabs at the top of the guide from left to right. A research process can be messy and non-linear, so you may have to jump around or go back a few steps (or tabs). Feel free to jump around, but be sure to work through each step of the research process.
