Assignment Overview
Answering a research question involves seeking out and processing information that helps you answer that question. This is true whether you are researching insurance plans or conducting academic research. In developing the Library Research Report, you will seek out scholarly articles relevant to your research question, extracting ideas from them that you will later synthesize into a final report (i.e., the Week 4 version of your project) and an answer— however tentative—to your research question.

On its face, analyzing sources for the library research report may seem to resemble making what is sometimes called an “annotated bibliography.” Please note, however, that your goal in developing this report is not simply to summarize sources. As you analyze your sources, you will produce “building blocks” for Week 3’s rough draft of your Research Project. This means that you should include only content that directly answers your research question. Your writing should also be clear and accessible to non-specialist readers.

A carefully constructed Library Research Report will significantly lighten your workload when you reach Week 3, since you’ll be able to construct your draft from writing you’ve already completed rather than producing an entirely new document.
