Taking notes for research papers

This slideshow is designed for students in GS10 classes embarking on their research journey.

Selecting a note-taking method that…

  • includes space for your voice
  • captures context
  • and documents all elements needed for a CMS citation (including DOI and/or accession number)

…can make your research experience more effective and efficient, helping your understand your topic more fully, recognize patterns more quickly, and avoid mistakes that can waste valuable time having to re-find a source for a quote or re-find the context in which the quote was made.

For CMS sample citations, check the Chicago-Style Citation Quick Guide.

America: Divided? What Could Change This?

America: Divided?  What Could Change This?

This is the new topic on the library’s discussion wall.  Participate in one or both portions of the conversation by adding your ideas and commitments to the wall.

First question: What have you noticed can bring people with different viewpoints together?  

Write in chalk the types of experiences that you find bring people together.

Second question: What can YOU do in your day-to-day life to strengthen connections rather than widen divisions with people whose viewpoints differ from yours?

Share what you’ll do by taping a card to the wall with your “I will…” statement on it.
