  • Topic selection, definition and development.
  • Development of effective research strategies.
  • Finding information in books, periodicals (newspapers, magazines and journals), and on the Internet  and other online computer resources.
  • Assistance using library research tools, including CCAC's Library Catalog and reference and article databases.
