Welcome to the research session. My name is Kathia Ibacache and I am the Romance Languages Librarian and your point of contact for any help you might need in your research process. This session will cover the research process, including research topics, the research question, background sources, academic sources, and publishing tips. This guide will provide information about research methodologies, resources available through databases and other materials at CU-Boulder, as well as open access (OA) resources available on the Internet. My goal is to help you gain familiarity with sites and resources available to you to complete your research projects.
