To get started, visit our guide, The Literature Review: A Research Journey. Begin with the overview page to view e-lectures on the purpose and process of a literature review. Then learn more about five critical steps in the process: question, search, manage, synthesize, and write. Each page of the LibGuide includes videos of faculty and students reflecting on their experiences researching and writing literature reviews.

For additional assistance searching the literature, schedule a research appointment by contacting Research Services.

For additional assistance writing a literature review, HGSE students may schedule a writing appointment by using the appointment sign-up tool on the HGSE Writing Services site.
