The ENGL Professional Writing Program at the University of Maryland library is jam-packed with resources for writers and teachers of writing. The Researching a Topic section is a great place to start. Here, students, instructors, and the general writing enthusiast can watch a short instructional video and learn how to develop a subject, formulate a research question, and think about possible sources. Finding Information provides an excellent drop down bar with links to outside resources. Annotated Bibliographies links to a separate University of Maryland site dedicated entirely to this important skill set. Other links include Conducting an Interview, Public Opinion Research, and Citing Tools.
