Research Process

This research guide provides tutorials, resource lists, tips and links for students doing research on Archeology.

  • Seek a variety of sources
  • Avoid plagiarism
  • Ask a librarian if you need help


Whether you are seeking existing information or exploring new or complex questions, research builds on knowledge and information that others have created.

Locating and using information from all types of sources is the core of the research process. A puzzle is one way to visualize the process. Each interconnected task in the process represents a piece of the whole puzzle. If one piece is missing, the puzzle is incomplete. When you’re working on something new, the puzzle can help you focus on the important parts of the process.

As you learn more about your research options and the topic itself, you may return to some tasks to do more work: the more you know, the more questions you can ask.
