Selecting a Research Topic: Choose the Right One for You! (Library Workshop)

Research Guide supporting the "Selecting a Research Topic: Choose the Right One for You!" Webinar. Use this guide for tips and suggestions for finding, changing, or refining your research topic.


Hi! I'm Robert J. Lackie, Professor-Librarian at the Franklin F. Moore Library. I have created this guide to best help you complete your assignments for your class this semester.

This guide will give you the context and basics in research strategies and tools, so you can save yourself time and get the most out of your learning.

It's a complicated world of information, and the Rider University Libraries are here to provide you with access and help you navigate. Use the tabs and their subpages above to assist you in finding appropriate resources for your topics in order to complete your research assignments.

Be efficient.  Be scholarly.  Use all of the Libraries' resources--print, Internet-based, and human!
