Your course paper is an academic essay or research paper based on a theme and a text. You will choose a topic and use documentation. As your syllabus states, "Pair a theme and a text in a way that lets you engage the ideas that interest you most."
Therefore, you may be researching both your theme and your text. This guide will help you with both.
For help on your annotated bibliography, see the page "Annotated Bibliographies."
You can search for books and articles in our catalog using the OneSearch.
To search only for books, change "Everything" to "Library Catalog."
You can start your search for criticism with a quick look at Gale Literary Resources.
