Please take the Library Pre-Test.
It's located in your COSU 100 Blackboard course.
The library can help you find the right kinds of discussion partners. One logical place to start is with a good background source such as an encyclopedia or dictionary, especially if the topic is new to you.
The information given in this section will help you to complete the first part of your library assignment.
This video tutorial, from the library at Wilfrid Laurier University, walks you through how to develop and narrow a topic by creating a research question.
After viewing this tutorial, you should be able to complete the Topic Chart in the "Selecting a Research Topic" section, and write your complete Research Question under "Forming a Research Question." If you need more help, check out the resources listed in the right sidebar.
A great way to come up with a research topic is simply to keep current on what's happening in your field of interest. Try browsing news articles online to find a topic of interest.
