Throughout the process, it is helpful to reflect on what you have found and what you have learned so far.  At this point, ask yourself some questions:

If someone else reads my paper, are they able to understand and connect the points I make?

Do you need more information?

Would it be helpful to include some statistics to make your argument stronger?

Perhaps a video could help illustrate your point?

Basically, what information do you need to help make your case?

This is also a good time to consider revising and polishing your work.  This page includes some resources which may help you through that process.

Helpful Resources

Many resources are available to you as you work through a research project.  

If you have questions, you can check with your instructor, of course.  

You can Ask Us for help as you find and evaluate information.

The Writing Center in Young Library is another excellent resource available to you. The Writing Center provides free, scheduled consultations to assist students in the process of composing and communicating in all media.

The Media Depot in the Hub in Young Library provides recording equipment, editing stations with software, and technical support for students' development of their academic media projects.
