EMPOWER - Choosing Your Topic: Page 3 of 12
What will you write about?
Once you understand the assignment, you need
to decide on a topic. To help with ideas:
- Browse for topics in periodicals that you read for fun or that relate to your course work
- Talk to your classmates or your instructor
- Go to the CTL/Writing Center at 402 Beatty Hall or call them at 617-989-4573
- Do some exploratory searches in an electronic database like
Academic Search Premier and read abstracts or explore
the subject guide search (More about using electronic
databases is in the module called Finding Articles.)
If you still need help, talk to a reference librarian by phone at 617-989-4040 x3 or email to Reference Services at firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, you can also see us in person at the Reference Desk at Alumni Library!
