Project Description

The 2016 Sophomore Research Project will have a global theme, in keeping with our curriculum this year!  You will conduct extensive research on a specific topic, beginning with a broad topic and narrowing it to a thesis statement which will guide you through the research process. Good researchers use a variety of types of resources.  Many begin with books to frame the context of the project, then articles from databases for more specific and/or current information.  Use academic websites to supplement what you have already found elsewhere.  Finally, cite your sources as you gather them and take good notes as you read in order to avoid plagairism.This guide provides an outline of resources you should utilize as you work through the research process.

Contact a Librarian

Feel free to contact a librarian for research or citation assistance. We are generally available in our offices for drop in help or scheduled appointments throughout the academic day.
