An Approach to Library Research for the Part-Time Undergraduate Student.
A library research strategy for part-time undergraduate students which attempts to make efficient use of small segments of time by dividing the research process into separate steps which do not have to be done at the same time, in sequence, or at the same library is outlined in this pamphlet. Choosing a topic, narrowing the focus of the topic, compiling a preliminary bibliography of books, locating the books, compiling a preliminary bibliography of articles, locating periodicals, and available library research facilities within the New York metropolitan area are among the topics covered. A list of hints for effective research is also included. Appended to the text are a sample time/place research chart, a list of phone numbers for research libraries in New York City, a list of City University of New York (CUNY) libraries, a guide to the availability of research materials in New York City public libraries, and a guide to the availability of criminal justice indexes in New York City public libraries and in the CUNY library system.
