Mapping your topic
Once you have completed your background reading, the next step is to create a concept map (sometimes called a mind map). This will help to expand your topic beyond the words or concepts provided in the question and clarify your thinking.
Your tutor can advise if your concepts and ideas are on the right track.
Below is an example of a concept map for our topic about artificial intelligence in university libraries.
