Understanding the Research Puzzle

This video kicks off the Research and Writing tutorial by asking: why do we research?  How do we create an identity as writers, researchers, and students?  How do I find my own voice admist the research process?

A larger version of this video can be found here.

Please note: Much of this LibGuide is based on the excellent Lib Guide of Milne Library at SUNY Geneseo, found here.  I would like to thank the librarians at SUNY Geneseo for helping me with the overall concept of this guide.
