The Seminar Paper: Strategies for the Literature Search.
Robertson, Craig A.
This workbook is the third in a series of three that has been integrated into the chemistry curriculum for majors at the University of Vermont. The workbook consists of readings and exercises designed to provide undergraduate students with foundation skills in the use of professional literature. The major emphasis is on searching the literature for topics to be included in papers and seminar lectures. Areas discussed include: (1) problems due to the growth of scientific information; (2) literature reviews; (3) monographs; (4) the Science Citation Index; and (5) searching on-line databases in chemistry, focusing on search strategies and chemistry databases. A 6-item student evaluation sheet is included. (This workbook assumes that students are familiar with the printed indexes and abstracts of "Chemical Abstracts.") (JN)
