Information Literacy Tutorial: Additional Help

Books on the Writing and Research Process

You Are Not Alone!

Librarians are available to guide and assist you throughout the entire research process.  You can get help in person at the reference desk, by phone, email, text, and chat. 

Once you begin writing your paper, you can get help from one of the tutors in the Sage Learning Center on the writing process.

I Did It! And So Can You!

Well, I did it!  I ended up focusing on the health aspects of vegetarianism, not the moral and ethical aspects.  Once I started researching and finding sources, I realized I needed to focus my topic more to fit the length of the paper.  I found some good sources and used the Scarab Rubric to evaluate them.  I learned how to cite my sources.  I've written a draft and am off to the Sage Center for some help polishing it up.  I'm hoping for an "A".  Keep your fingers crossed.  Anyway, I've learned a lot along the way.
