Qatar Leadership Conference - Getting Started with Your MUN Research: Home

This guide was created for the Qatar Leadership Conference 2017.

You’ve been assigned a country and a committee, so now what? This workshop will focus on places to gather information beyond Google, ways to use Google more effectively, and techniques for researching and note-taking that will keep you out of plagiarism trouble.

The purpose of this guide is to give you access to free resources that will help with your MUN research. Please also look for appropriate databases through your school library, local university libraries, and your national library.
