HOWLER Tutorials: Choosing a Topic


Library Help for Choosing a Topic

Choosing a topic that is both researchable and one that fits the parameters of any given assignment is a challenge for most writers. To give options for exploring topic ideas, this three part tutorial offers suggestions for using library materials to seek out and refine a direction for your research assignment.

Remember that librarians are available to discuss your topic ideas. We love to explore potential topic selection and direction with students, so don't hesitate to ask!
