This guide is designed to show how to start your research in the field of nursing. Browse through the guide to understand how to access LSC-Montgomery resources and find specific topics and materials. If any additional help is needed please contact your librarian.
Start your research by doing some background research. Take time to engage in some mind-mapping exercises that will help you identify key subject terms. Encyclopedias and other reference resources can be used to help you refine your subject terms and the citations in these sources can be used to find more information on your topic.
Make a Plan
Consider how much time you have to complete your assignment and how hard it will be to get the resources you need for your topic. If you are finding your research difficult to manage, narrow your topic or break your research down into manageable sub-topics. If you are not finding enough information on your topic, try using broader subject terms.
