Research Process

This tutorial aims to help develop effective library research skills and critical thinking skills in all courses at Prince George's Community College.


The objective of this guide is to teach basic skills for doing research and information literacy skills to find, retrieve, analyze, and use the information effectively for lifelong learning. Learning these skills provides access to the ever expanding universe of information and knowledge. 

The guide consists of a series instructional sections that are designed to teach the basic concepts of library research.
