There are 6 units in this tutorial (see purple buttons), each with its own set of objectives, information, and exercises. We recommend that you start with "The Basics."

Several units have worksheets that can be filled out as you proceed through the tutorial. You may e-mail these to addresses of your choice for future reference or as part of an assignment. You may also print a copy and bring it with you to the library for help with your project.

At the conclusion of the tutorial you will find a form for providing feedback on Research 101. Please take a minute to let us know about your experience.

Research 101 is an interactive online tutorial for students wanting an introduction to research skills. The tutorial covers the basics, including how to select a topic and develop research questions, as well as how to select, search for, find, and evaluate information sources.

Research 101 is intended to help improve how you research, so you can tackle information problems anywhere. Research 101 is NOT a UW-specific help page with links for finding information; and it is NOT intended to replace meetings with your instructor or librarians.
