How to Use this Guide


The left-hand menu sections follow the general process of researching and writing an essay from top to bottom, from Starting, through Exploring to Creating, Citing, and Troubleshooting. Tabs loosely follow the research and writing process within each section from left to right.


This guide is a rough guide. Follow your own path and dip into what interests or helps you.
