I have developed this page specifically for graduate students in the department of Linguistics.
My goal is to give you a quick overview of the most important tips for writing a research paper or a class assignment. I will help you to understand the difference between primary and secondary (re)sources, explain how to do a multi-database search, and most importantly, give you a basic search strategy in 10 steps.
Here you will also find some more bibliographic information about resources that can help you in your research.
You can reach the sub-pages of this section of the guide by using the links under the main navigation bar above, or by clicking on the links below.
