There are proper ways to research a paper...and there are the ways most students do it: laboriously, tediously, and inefficiently. Here are the techniques and shortcuts that the pros use. They will enable students to find their way to the best resources for their own projects. From preparing the preliminary outline, work file, and bibiliography, Research Shortcuts proceeds to using the appropriate resource guides, as well as modern aids to research. It also discusses shortcuts that reach the experts: writing letters that get questions answered, and making face-to-face (or telephone) interviews pay off. A final section is devoted to using the research data: first drafts, choosing specific quotes wisely, paraphrasing, and final drafts.2808 Strictly speaking: will America be the death of N4 English? / Edwin Newman. a Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, 1974 205 p.; 24 cm.
