CSP Library   Library Resources for ENG 121: College Writing: Narrow Your Topic

Your Topic

A successful research project or paper starts with a topic that is the right "size". If your topic is too broad or too big, you'll find too many sources. If your topic is too narrow or too small, you won't find enough sources.

Use these materials to help you pick and narrow your topic before you start researching.
