This chapter addresses the role of extant literature and its influence in the crafting of a research design. Existing literature informs the development of a research question, selection of methods for data collection, and formulation of an analytical framework. Searching through these databases, using terms related to the topic, yields considerable sources, including journal articles, books, reports, and other relevant materials. The chapter also draws on some examples of initial approaches to the desegregation study to demonstrate the process for approaching a research in a way that is attendant to its local meanings as well as to broader spheres of influence.

Keywords:   literature, research question, data collection, methods, analytical framework, desegregation study
