Finding a topic for your paper will vary depending on which class your paper is for and what guidelines your instructor has given for the assignment. We generally advise that you pick a topic you are interested in, and if you're not sure where to start, try these two library databases:
Browse topics using the subject lists below the main image or by searching in the search bar at the top of the page.
Choose Browse Topics from the menu or search by keyword in the upper right corner of the page.
Once you've chosen a topic, you'll want to use keywords to search several different library databases to get different types of resources for your paper. For more information on using library resources, see our library guide: How To Do Research or our answer to the question How do I do research?

- How do I find peer-reviewed sources for a psychology paper?
