From the syllabus:


(25%). This assignment allows you to investigate in more detail one of the topics covered in LIS 505. Based on your own interests, select a topic for further reading. Broad topics, such as personnel, will need to be narrowed. You can choose a subtopic (such as workplace diversity or performance appraisal) or focus the reading on one type of library setting (such as planning in school libraries or fundraising in academic libraries). You will read at least ten items for this paper, drawing from books, chapters, and/or articles. At least two of these readings need to be from library literature. While you can reference assigned texts and readings from the course, these are not counted as part of the ten required readings for this paper.

The paper is a short summary of what you learned from the readings. Think of it as an “executive summary” of a major paper on the topic. This means you will want to synthesize the information into key points across the readings; you will not describe each reading individually in the paper.  Reflect on the reading you have completed and link the topic to the information agency setting. Indicate “next steps” for your learning about the topic. Where appropriate, cite your readings with parenthetical references, e.g., (Nick and Nora, 1941). An annotated bibliography of the readings for your paper will supplement the paper. Only brief annotations are needed; use one or two sentences, focusing on the content of the reading. You can choose any citation style you prefer -- just be consistent.
