What is research

  2. 2. What is Research? Librarian’s definition: Research is a process of investigation. An examination of a subject from different points of view. It’s not just a trip to the library to pick up a stack of materials, or picking the first five hits from a computer search. Research is a hunt for the truth. It is getting to know a subject by reading up on it, reflecting, playing with the ideas, choosing the areas that interest you and following up on them. Research is the way you educate yourself.
  3. 3. What is Research? • 9th grade at AHS definition Research is a process in which you will educate yourself about a subject that is selected by your teacher. Research is a lifelong skill needed not only for your next several years in high school but also so that you can be a success adult once you leave high school.
