Writing - Research - NICC Library at Northeast Iowa Community College
Skip to Main Content



You have two helpful places on campus to help you pull together your research paper: The Learning Center and the Library. 

The Learning Center will help with the citation, give you tips on writing improvement, and help brainstorm what ideas may be best for you. Meanwhile, the Library is a tool to use to help with the heavy lifting of the research. So don't be afraid to ask for help. After all, it's what we are here for!

There are many ways in which you can start with your writing:

  • taking notes
  • paraphrasing ideas
  • making an outline
  • Writing in your source material
  • Citing sources & styles

Altogether it may seem daunting, but take your time and find your style. We have more tabs on the left for each of these topics for you to use as a reference.
