The Research Process in a Nutshell

  • Develop a topic that asks a question or poses a problem that interests you.
  • Select appropriate search terms for your subject. More specific search terms will yield better results. Some examples of broad topics that can be further narrowed down include:
    • Sistine Chapel Frescoes
    • Patrons in Renaissance Italy
    • Greek Vase Painting
    • Near Eastern Art
  • Search PITTCat+ and subject oriented databases.
  • Revise your topic. Determine how you will answer your question.
  • Evaluate your resources carefully!
  • When in doubt, contact your librarian.
