Research Your Way Past Writer's Block

Document Type



This is a recipe for students conducting a lengthy research project: senior thesis, master’s thesis, or doctoral dissertation. Academic research and writing can be a very lonely affair. This workshop will provide students with:

  • a scholarly community in which to share research woes and help solve each others’ problems
  • a chance to get help with research issues that they’re stuck on
  • tips on how to keep research organized over the course of an advanced project
  • a venue for finding further research help in the library (e.g. connecting students with a subject specialist, locations of special collections, etc.)
