The research paper is an original essay presenting your ideas in response to information found in library sources. As you gather research material, your ever-increasing knowledge of a topic will allow you to make informed judgments and original interpretations. At each stage of research, you will have a complete idea of what you have already found and what you are looking for. Midway through the process, the writing tasks of creating a review of the literature and a proposal will help you focus the direction of your research. This chapter addresses both the technical skills of finding and recording information and the intellectual skills of understanding the material, developing original ideas, and making informed judgments.
