100 Research Topic Guides for Students. Greenwood Professional Guides in School Librarianship.
Borne, Barbara Wood
This book is a comprehensive guide to 100 popular research topics for high school students. Each guide, which can be photocopied, will help the student to locate print and nonprint information about the topic, narrow the scope of the paper, and find related topics. In addition to serving as a map to library resources, each guide acts as an outline of library research procedures. From "abortion" to "youth gangs," the 100 topic guides are organized into sections on science and technology, social issues, social studies, and biography. Each guide contains a capsule description of the topic; Dewey Decimal call numbers for shelf browsing; subject headings; pamphlet file sources; reference materials; book and CD-ROM periodical indexes; online databases; key words and descriptors to use in searching; a list of videotapes on the topic; fiction information; suggestions for narrowing the topic; and suggestions for related topics. An appendix of aids to research is included to help students with note-taking, bibliographic citations, and electronic database searching. (Author/AEF)
