Research projects can take many forms, but all will test your academic skills.  Many students who are doing research for the first time (or the first time in a long time) feel lost: Where to begin?  What do you need to look for?  Where should you look for it?

For a one-stop in-depth primer on the academic research process, check out our Academic Research Primer Library Guide. Here you will find an explanation of the research process, as well as helpful tips and links to use along the way for each step. 

For just one kickstarter tutorial from that collection of resources, videos, and tutorials, check out the The Research Process video tutorial link for an overview of what research entails, from pre-research to in-depth research, outlining, and writing.
