Weil, Martha A.
These three research guides present guidelines and sample exercises to help students at Washburn University of Topeka in Kansas use the library in preparing a book review, a term project, and a written or oral presentation. The guide on book reviews provides suggestions and exercises for choosing a book and finding information on the book, its author, and its subject matter. The use of "Book Review Digest,""Book Review Index," and other reference sources is described. Included in the guide on term projects are general suggestions for developing library research strategies and compiling a working bibliography for the project, exercises that can form part of the library research for a term paper, information about interlibrary loan and computer searching services, and a list of seven books that give detailed guidance for preparing term papers. The guide on written or oral presentations covers the location of background information in encyclopedias, current awareness loose-leaf services, and the library pamphlet file; the location of periodical articles by means of indexes and abstracts; and the location of books by use of the card catalog. Exercises are provided for each type of search. (ESR)
