  3. Refine your search topic.
  4. Consider your resource options -- what type of materials do you need to answer your questions? Books, magazines, primary sources, etc?
  5. Select and use the appropriate research tool (such as books or article databases in GALILEO).
  6. Locate your materials.
  7. Analyze your materials.
  8. Organize and write your paper.
  9. Compose your bibliography and cite your work properly.
