Start by thumbing through the textbooks or course pack for the class in which your paper was assigned. Browse the table of contents, chapter headings and subheadings, to get an overview of the subject matter. Visit your library and browse in the catalog and reference room to find out what sources are held by the library which may relate to your class. Browse some of the subject-indexed sources on the internet with the same purpose. The Info Search section of this manual (p. 20) will help you learn how and where to browse.

Your objective in this step is to get a "bird's eye view" of the general subject matter, to give your brain some ideas to work on while you're getting ready for the step of choosing a topic.
