Welcome

Research assignments are common in many disciplines. This guide was created based on librarians' experiences helping students challenged by research assignments and includes tips for avoiding common problems. In addition to the suggestions you'll find here, librarians are also available to help you design or tweak your assignments to make them as effective as possible. Use the contact information on the left to reach out to the librarian liaison for your area or send a general request to mjceref@mjc.edu.
