Library Research Guide
This library guide exists to provide you with a starting point for your research as you consider methodologies and modalities. Use the menu or the page links at the bottom to navigate through the guide. On this page, we'll cover some considerations for graduate study and research before fully diving into the individual sections of the guide.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your librarian, Joe Taylor, using the links under the Undergraduate Services Librarian heading. You may also contact the library via email at email@example.com, through chat, by using the Ask a Librarian chat boxes throughout the guide or by calling the library at 785-826-2636.
As you progress through your program, you will find that the expectations in graduate school are much higher and the demand for your time and attention will be much greater. One of the major differences between undergraduate and graduate education is that while as an undergraduate student you were expected to learn the foundations and principles within your chosen discipline, as a graduate student, you are now expected to contribute to the knowledge of your discipline. With that in mind, here are some articles that may help you adjust to the new expectations.
Here are some articles from the latest issue of XRDS: Crossroads, The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Magazine for students. This section of the guide is set to update with new articles as they become available. XRDS is a fantastic resource for students in computing and engineering sciences with a wide array of articles, discussions, interviews with leading experts, latest news from the field and student papers. XRDS also encourages student interaction through letters to the editor (email firstname.lastname@example.org), Twitter messages with the #xrds tag, and interaction on the XRDS Facebook page.
