Overview

This is a Lightning Source, Inc. print-on-demand title and can be ordered only from Spring Arbor Distributors by calling 800-395-5599.

The mere thought of doing research in the library and writing a research paper can strike terror in the heart of college students. As the author says, "Recent studies have shown that most college and university students experience anxiety when approaching a library. The main reason seems to be that most college students, even most graduate students, have no idea how to plan a systematic strategy for library research. The result is wasted time that could have been spent researching the four other papers due next week; missed bibliography items that were crucial could have meant a better grade; and an overall slovenliness that would move a hobo to tears of envy and makes the research that was done look careless and incomplete." The Survivor's Guide to Library Research will help you overcome the fear of research by providing simple guidelines that will enable you to take control of the research process. It shows how to - work with the assigned topic ("Manhandling Your Topic") - approach the library with a simple, systematic strategy - take and organize notes and bibliographical information during and after the research process - write the actual paper This book should be assigned to anyone required to write a research paper, both to be read and to be used for reference.

Author Biography: William Badke is librarian of the Associated Canadian Theological Schools in Langley, British Columbia, and of Northwest Baptist Theological College and Seminary, where he is also associate professor of Bible and Theology.
