MLA Style Guide


There are many styles of research citation. 

Our school typically uses a style known as Modern Language Association (MLA).

Research Cycle

Research is a process, much like a scientific experiment. There is a plan for you to follow, but you may move freely between steps, go forward, backward, and then forward again, until you reach your final product.

The steps are:

1. Define your topic -- What are you studying?

2. Ask questions -- Without questions, you are not doing research

3. Strategize -- List your keywords and survey your resources

4. Find information -- Use the resources in this LibGuide to get you started

5. Take Notes -- Use what you're comfortable with. It is suggested that you start with notecards.  Online versions are now available.

 6. Share -- Create your final product

After each step of the process, take the time to reflect . Ask yourself:

1. What is my progress? Am I being successful?

2. With what do I need help? Who can I ask for help?

3. What are my next steps? Do I have a plan for my next research/work session?

4. When the project is done: How do I feel about the end product? Did I work my hardest? What did I learn about how I work?
