Where Do You Go To Find Out More?

Research is More than Just Books

When I think of research, I might see myself in the library digging into volumes of books. But research is more than just books. There are many different ways to study, and there are many places I can go to find out what I need to know. For example, when I meet a friend for coffee I might talk about some of the choices I’m considering. My friend might share something with me that changes my whole perspective. Research is gathering information anywhere, anytime, with anyone.

I can get information from:
