When first learning how to research, the process might feel daunting- there is a lot to learn about the research topic- but also about research itself. In this section, you'll learn some tips to be a more efficient researcher. The first section covers ways to optimize keywords used in searches. In "Growing Research Skills" there are strategies from making a research plan to approaches to quickly assess if a resource is good for your project. It also talks about Research as repetitive and iterative process, and that this repetition of searching is normal. Next is how to evaluate resources and make sure the source is credible. The last section encourages researchers to think broadly about what data is and where it can be found.
