Project Description

You will select your own research project, using ideas and methods learned in class so far.  Then, you will gather information and write a five-page background paper on an area of interest so that you will learn more about the subject matter before narrowing down to a specific study question.  (This background paper will eventually serve as a draft for the introduction of your scientific manuscript.)  This LibGuide will link you to appropriate books, databases and websites, as well as to our APA Citation Guide.  Navigate through each category of resources using the yellow tabs above!  Do not hesitate to ask Dr. Small or a librarian should you need help finding or citing information at any stage of this project.
