Research papers can be intimidating, but they don’t have to be! This workshop will break library-based research papers down to three key elements that work together during the research process: finding a research question that is original and compelling, composing a clear and persuasive thesis statement that answers your research question, and engaging and documenting your sources. Make your research papers more manageable and less stressful by learning useful strategies for tackling these tasks and keeping the information overload under control. If you are currently working on a research project, please bring it to the workshop. Undergraduates, especially freshman and sophomores who are new to college-level research projects, are encouraged to attend.
