This course is designed to introduce you to 'Research', as a concept, as a process, as contribution to the accumulation of human knowledge - both in total and in specific disciplines. The ASU Library provides access to resources and services that support the teaching and research mission of the university. That is what we do. Please do not hesitate to ask for help when you need it.
