This book is intended to help college instructors in all disciplines to design library research projects that students will enjoy writing and faculty will enjoy reading. It is a librarian's contribution to the literature of the Writing Across the Curriculum movement. The ideas and techniques presented are offered not as prescriptions so much as starting points for the construction of projects to meet the needs of faculty and students and use the resources available in a wide range of curricula. The book offers specific practical suggestions for selecting and assigning topics and suggests meaningful ways to teach scholarly documentation and to design plagiarism-proof assignments.
