Choosing a topic for your paper, project, or presentation can be challenging. This Library Guide will give you some strategies to try when:
- You can choose any topic that relates to the content of the course.
- You can choose any topic.
Please note that once you choose a topic you will almost certainly still need to narrow and refine it for best results. See the Pfau Library’s Library Guide, Narrowing a Topic, for some help with this.
Sometimes students worry that they will be unable to find books or articles on a topic simply because it is unfamiliar to them. Don't worry--get help from a librarian! Usually, there are far more books and articles than you ever imagined.
