New Research Paper Support Page!
The library has created a new research paper help guide to walk you methodically through the development of your assignment. There is even a section for faculty and how they use these modules in Blackboard. The optimal word is research. You can dive into whatever section you need day or night, on or off-campus. This guide is divided into seven sections and includes 68 brief videos and tutorials designed by librarians to guide your thinking and approaches to your research. Don’t forget about the writing services available from HBU’s outstanding Academic Success Center to blend your research into a well-written project. Their writing services are offered both in person and online (call 281-649-3226 for more). The librarians and the ASC have the resources and skills to help your do your best!
Know Your Resources:
JSTOR provides access to more than 12 million academic journal articles, books, and primary sources in 75 disciplines. JSTOR began in 1994 to help university libraries save space by converting printed scholarly journals into electronic form. Users will not find as many recent articles as they will find archival content from six months ago and farther back. Did you know that:
- Is interdisciplinary? It’s strongest areas are education, biology, classical studies, economics, history, language and literature, Middle Eastern Studies, religion, political sciences, philosophy, and sociology, but there are many others subjects!
- Users can create their own personalized account where they can save articles and use some of JSTOR’s innovative features?
- JSTOR has its own thesaurus to provide new ways to explore and find content and narrow a search within a subject area?
- JSTOR has a new Text Analyzer where you can upload your own text to search for related journal content?
- JSTOR supports data and text mining?
- JSTOR has early journal content including U.S. content published before 1923 and non-U.S. content published prior to 1870? Here are two great examples: “A letter by Benjamin Franklin, Esq, concerning an electrical kite” and “”A letter of Mr. Isaac Newton containing his new theory about light and colors.”
