If you get stuck, ask a librarian for help!


Research does not happen in a straight line, so try not to think of "The Research Process" as a series of steps. Instead, in the beginning stages of research, you will find yourself shifting your hypothesis or doubling back on a previous "step" due to new information or understanding. 

Use the Purdue OWL to learn more about MLA style. If you have any questions or are unsure about in-text citations, your Works Cited page, or formatting in general, I attached some documents below that may help. Or, ask a librarian for help! You can also email me,
