Night of the Research Paper Returns

Wednesday, November 4, 2015, 4-9 p.m.

Waldo Library

WMU Libraries wants to help students succeed in their research assignments. "Night of the Research Paper” is a drop-in event on Wed., November 4, 2015 from 4-9 pm at Waldo Library. Don’t be a research zombie! (Getting started early can help quell the fears)

Students will receive help through all or part of the sometimes scarey process of a research project by librarians, Writing Center staff, and other WMU experts. Help will be available on narrowing/defining a topic, finding reliable and/or scholarly information, organizing the paper, and appropriately citing sources. Participants are asked to bring a hardcopy of the research assignment to these one-on-one consultations. “We want to help our students do their best work and learn about the great materials available through the library.” said Sue Steuer,  event chairperson and librarian.

The event is sponsored by University Libraries, Writing Center, and the Friends of University Libraries. 

Entire classes are welcome but prior notice is requested so accommodations can be made.

Also to note: Research assistance and writing help are always available at Waldo Library's ‘Need Help?’ Desk, first floor, 387-5178, and the Writing Center, 387-4615.
