Library Help - Indispensable
Today, it is almost impossible to keep up with all the latest developments in the evolving research library. However, knowledgeable and approachable librarians can make your research easier. Ask them! Don't hesitate to contact the Subject Specialist for Education Margaret Cohen or any of the other Subject Specialists.

 

Stop Researching and Write!

  • It is impossible to thoroughly cover every facet of the research question and to read all the secondary literature. Know when to quit, when to stop collecting data and looking for fresh leads.
     
  • It's also important to know when to begin writing. Design a well-planned schedule to minimize writer’s block and procrastination.
     
  • Remember that the most important aspect of any research project is that it is finished. While, obviously, not all completed research papers or reports are good. However, an education paper or report cannot be good if it is left unfinished!!!
