S504	Bibliography and Methods of Research

TR 2:30pm  3:45pm/section #4334/3 cr./Ballantine Hall 233


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:

- computer-based research, especially bibliographical searches and
textual analysis
- 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 materials (dictionaries,
encyclopedias, anthologies)
- preparation of a C.V.
- familiarization with key journals

Besides regular class meetings, we will meet frequently 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. throughout the
semester.
