S504	Bibliography and Methods of Research
MW 9:30am  10:45am/class# 26600/3cr./Location TBA


The aim of this course is to introduce graduate students to a broad
range of essential components for the successful completion of a
research program and degree.  The course will include sections on:
basics of literary research, computer-based research, especially
bibliographical searches and textual analysis, textual analysis
tools, preparation of research papers (from format to thesis
development), expository style and self-editing, preparation of
abstracts, reviews, and grants, working with archival searches and
manuscript material, compilation of key bibliographical material
(dictionaries, encyclopedias, anthologies, etc.), and
familiarization with key journals in the field.

Besides regular class meetings, we will meet with librarians at both
the Main Library and the Lilly Library for hands-on demonstrations
of computer searches and archival work.  Much of the work will be
project-oriented (i.e., completing a task that deals with the
targeted skill), and, therefore, will entail turning in
bibliographies, abstracts, sample C.V., etc. thorough out the
semester.
