Library research can be frustrating, but remember that not finding results can also be meaningful. Perhaps your research question is too current or too local? Or perhaps you are not searching using the right library resource? Many times, though, simply modifying or rethinking just one part of your research question will solve the problem. Don’t give up! Talk to a librarian if you are stuck.
"When you pick your topic, it's not set in stone. Picking and adjusting your topic is an integral part of the research process!" (NCSU Libraries).
