Time to start preparing for that big term paper? Literary Reference Center provides useful guidelines for planning, researching and writing it.

 

Once you’re on the Literary Reference Center home page, go to the Reference Shelf in the upper right hand corner and click on Research Guide. This guide will provide you concise and thorough advice on writing research papers, including:

-   Choosing your topic

-   Beginning your research

-   Taking notes and writing a draft

-   Evaluating your information, citing your sources and (gasp!) avoiding plagiarism

 

And there is even help with the dreaded:  my paper is nearly due and I’ve barely started!

What’s nice about this resource is that the recommendations are short and sweet.  When you already have plenty of work to do researching your term paper – the last thing you need is to read another book on writing a successful research paper!
