Use this guide as you embark on your personal project!

Imagine the Possibilities

When choosing a topic, think about: 

  • ‚ÄčWhat are you good at?
  • What do you get excited about?
  • What do you like to read about?
  • What have you learned about that makes you want to know more?

Collect Your Ideas

Plan Your Project

Research

Look at the boxes in the center column on this Libguide to find books (print or ebooks) and databases that will help you learn more. 

Be sure to think about the reliability of the sources you use! 

  • Who is the AUTHOR?
  • What is their BIAS?
  • Is the CONTENT what you're looking for? Is it correct?
  • Is the information up to DATE?
  • EVALUATE: Is this a good source for you?

Remember, if you take information or ideas from somewhere, you should give credit to the sources of your information. That might look like a works cited (use Noodletools!), or it might look like links on a slideshow or poster.
