ENG 121 - Research Narrative: Finding a Topic

You'll find everything you need in this guide to complete your English 121 Research Narrative.


This guide was created to help you complete your ENG 121 Research Narrative project.

If you are not on an Edison State campus, you must login with you Edison credentials. This will require you to input your name and Library barcode number (the 14 digit number on the back of your student ID). If you don’t have access to your barcode number, contact the Library by phone (937-778-7950) or email

Finding a Topic

Use our Facts on File databases to find a topic that interests you. For this demonstration, we'll use the World News Digest section to find a Key News event.  Issues & Controversies is also an excellent place to start.
