Advice for Success in Completing Your Research
Thoma's Research Protocol for Stellar Results (meaning an A on this paper!!!!)
1. Search the online catalog for print sources using the name of your chosen artist or sculptor. Think creatively about using keywords such as 18th century Renaissance art or Old Testament art. Your ability to use interchangeable key words, phrases, and synonyms for your artist and the time period of his work is absolutely essential to achieving a great deal of success in completing this project.
2. Consider using our on-line databases particularly Grove's Dictionary of Art, Britannica, Ebsco, Proquest, and JStor in order to gather relevant, in-depth sources.
3. Print out or make copies of all sources as you find them. INCLUDE citation information with each source you find. A folder will be provided to you for this purpose and Mrs. Strange and Ms. Thoma will check to see that citation information is attached at the end of each class.
4. Gather sources. Print sources. Attach citations. Then, READ and highlight key words and phrases to ABSORB information before taking notes and beginning your rough draft.
5. Chicago Manual of Style format is required and examples are provided on the blue tab, "Citation Style Sheets and Research Paper Help" specifically designated on the Foundation of World Societies lib guide.
