English Studies: Linguistics

In this step by step-guide, you'll learn how to find sources for your bachelor research paper in English linguistics. This guide covers choosing search terms for your topic, useful databases and how to search them, useful search techniques, evaluating your sources, and references guides. 

If you need more help finding sources after going through this guide, you can book a one hour search consultation with a librarian. If you have quick questions, you can use out chat service, which you'll find on all the library's web pages during office hours. 

Picking your topic

Picking your topic is the start of the research process. When you pick your topic, it's not set in stone. Picking and adjusting your topic is an integral part of the research process! Watch this video and others from NCSU Libraries to get started. Creative Commons 3.0 BY-NC-SA US license
