Abstract: In this assignment you will create a detailed flow chart diagram, using http://creately.com to plan out your research process for an assignment. This flow chart may be informed by our textbook’s suggested “Diagram of the Research Process” (George 2008 p.19) and ways of getting started with a topic: Ask, Read, Browse, Look, Link (p.31-42). Or you may use the UF library’s assignment calculator http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/librarywest/ to help you determine a possible schedule to keep on track with your assignment. This diagram will be most useful if you select a real research assignment that you need to complete this semester.
