What is this Guide?
So you have to write a research paper...and you've never done that before for a College course.
Is it any different than what you've done before? Back in high school? Or a really long time ago? Probably.....
Where do you start?? Google? Wikipedia? Books? Articles?
This guide is going to help you get started in the right direction. Without wasting a bunch of time working in the wrong direction.
For Example . . .
Let's say your research topic is Facebook and privacy.
There must be tons of information about Facebook through Google.
A recent Google search on the topic - Facebook privacy - produced how many hits? Brace yourself.....
9,440,000,000 !!!! There must be a better way!
