EMPOWER - Choosing Your Topic: Page 2 of 13
What will you write about?
Once you understand the assignment, you need
to decide on a topic. To help with ideas:
- Browse for topics in articles or books that you read for fun, or that relate to your course work.
- Talk to your classmates or your instructor.
- Go to the Writing Center on the library first floor.
- Browse a database like Academic Search Complete and read abstracts (more about using electronic databases is in the module called Finding Articles).
If you still need help, talk to a reference librarian or connect with us online at LibAnswers.
