SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT                        

Got your first research project yet? Always read through the assignment and highlight the assignment requirements such as types of sources (e.g. book, website) you need to use as well as the documentation style for the sources required by your professor.  Research assignment requirements may be different from class to class so always check-in with your professor to make sure you’re on the right track before the deadline gets too close.
