This purpose of this guide is to help you get started with your research. Here you can get guidance with:

  • Research Databases: clarify what a database is and which databases you have access to as an RIT student

  • Further Research Strategies: help with choosing a topic and narrowing down your results and finding peer reviewed (scholarly) articles from  the databases to support your claim

  • Exploring Topic Ideas: resources that can help you narrow down what topic you will research for your project

  • Citation: where to find help with citations

  • Annotated Bibliography: how to create an annotated bibliography for your classes


If you have questions as you begin your research, please feel free to make a consultation appointment with your librarian – we are always happy to help!
