COMM 109 - Speech Communication - Prof. Vartuli Marin: Select A Topic


Bombus     As tutors and librarians, we share the mission of promoting student success in the areas of writing, research, and in giving proper attribution to sources. When a student's professor requires them to support their writing with outside sources, we are here to help them find the most credible, relevant, accurate, and authoritative sources, as well as to advise them on proper citation of those sources in the desired format.

Librarians can help students to:

1.) Select and refine topics

2.) Develop research strategies

3.) Find appropriate sources in Printed and Electronic resources

4.) Provide advice on navigating the Internet for authoritative and reliable sources

5.) Cite information appropriately (In-Text and Bibliographies)

The Library website offers numerous ways for the students to ask questions and answers to frequently asked questions are posted on Ask a Librarian.

Select A Topic

Before choosing a topic, make sure you understand your assignment and what your instructor is asking for.  If you have questions, make sure to ask your instructor for clarification.

  • Choose a subject area that interests you and that will interest the readers.
  • Choose a topic that is current or highly debated by academics or other writers/presenters. Breaking, obscure, or up-and-coming topics may need creativity on your part or "original research" such as an interview.


You can get ideas for research topics from the following databases amd websites below:
