Summary

Research Papers was the FIRST research manual for freshmen and continues to be a leading text for teaching techniques and current practices in research documentation. This spiral-bound worktext is structured to correspond to the step-by-step process of writing research papers, from initial research to the final proofreading. The text demonstrates the use of both print and electronic sources, including more than 50 examples of proper documentation. Discussions of computer catalogs, the Internet, and CD-ROM bring students up-to-date on the most recent innovations in library research techniques. While stressing MLA style throughout, this text also discusses APA style in depth, including a sample paper in that style. The major chapters contain exercises to reinforce their most important points, and the bibliography provides students with reliable reference sources in 24 different fields.
