At the start of every semester, Professor Fajans and I conduct a two hour workshop to help upper level students prepare to research and write a seminar paper. This semester the workshop was held on February 4, 2010. Topics discussed included research strategies, finding and selecting a topic, developing a thesis, framing arguments, footnoting and plagiarism.
If you were either unaware of the workshop or were unable to attend, you can still access all of the workshop materials online or if you prefer, you can obtain a hard copy of the materials at the library’s circulation desk. To access the hard copy, simply ask the circulation staff for the Seminar Paper Workshop materials on course reserve. You can also access a video recording of last semester’s workshop online or check out the dvd which is also available on course reserve in the Library.
