Questions to Ask Yourself

As you begin your paper, here are some questions to ask yourself.  These can be helpful for formulating your topic, deciding on your thesis, and finding appropriate resources.  If you need additional help, feel free to contact your Architecture Librarian, Rebecca Price.

  • What do I want to investigate?
  • What question(s) do I want to answer in the process?
  • What's my hypothesis, or what do I hope to prove with this essay?
  • What kind of resources (books, articles, images) will I need?

The tabs along the top of this guide will help you find a variety of resources for your paper.
