Let's see if we can help you.  First of all you need to choose a topic.  Review the assignment that you were given.  Then, the Library has some resources for choosing and narrowing down your topic.  Go to the library homepage at  Toward the middle of the page is a picture of a woman, and it says "research starters".  Click on that and you will find some links for getting started.  What might be particularly helpful is the short videos we have created.  The direct link to our youtube page is  Look at the "Research - Getting Started" titles at the bottom.
