Writing papers is an essential part of the college experience. Whether you write one paper or twenty for your courses here in Rio Hondo College, you will be expected to demonstrate reading and writing skills, critical thinking, reasoning, and organization.

For many students, the bad news is that the process of writing a paper is unfamiliar and even daunting. The good news, however, is that help is readily available from two sources. The Library will assist you in preparing to write your paper and obtaining your research materials, while the Writing Center will help you in the actual writing process.

This handbook has been prepared by RHC librarians to guide you through the research process and familiarize you with the resources that the Library offers.

Follow this step-by-step research plan for a fast start to your research paper.
