Getting Started

Welcome to the Education Research Guide from the Armacost Library, University of Redlands. Use this guide to help you find, use and analyze information!

When you are searching for information, as a generalization...

If you want a one or more page summary or background information, try an encyclopedia.

If you are looking for a more comprehensive analysis of your topic, look for books.

If you are looking for more detailed analysis on some aspect of your topic, look for articles.

If you are looking for an of-the-moment, fact-based account of an event, look for newspaper articles.

If you are looking for more obscure or esoteric information, pop culture topics, or historic primary documents, look for websites.



The Research Process: A Map

Research is not a linear process. Research requires repetition of the same processes--utilizing background information, developing a research question, collecting evidence--in order to eventually define and develop a research question that is significant and manageable.
