Honors Thesis Preparation

Welcome to the HCOL 101 library research guide, which is designed to help students in all disciplines conduct successful library research for the literature review as well as the honors thesis. This research guide is not a source of discipline-based content.

While your thesis advisor will likely recommend specific books and articles, your own research is critical. This guide is meant to support you as you take your research to another level; if there is any information that would be useful to include here that you do not see, please let me know, and I can add to it.


A Word About Tracking Your Research

It is good practice to keep track of your searches and your resources, e.g., which databases you used, what search terms worked in a database, what books you used etc. Research is not a linear process and you will most likely revisit a database or book during the process. Keeping track will ultimately save you time and duplication of effort, as well as helping you become more organized and efficient.

Students keep track of their research process in a number of ways - creating a research log, designating a thesis folder or notebook. Use the method with which you feel most comfortable.
