Curious Cat

It’s time to explore your curiosity!

When starting a research assignment, it helps to choose a broad topic that interests you (like aging) and gradually narrow it down. Encyclopedias, handbooks, and subject-specific dictionaries supply good background information on a given topic. They can give:

  • A comprehensive overview of your subject
  • Introductions of main themes associated with your topic
  • Definitions of common terms in your subject area
  • Relevant keywords to search with

Once you have a grasp of the core concept, it’s time to narrow focus into a manageable research topic.
