When you need to write research papers, articles and dissertations, be sure to carefully collect the reference details for the articles and books you will use while writing.
Check with your school or department to see if individual writing tutors are available. Librarians are not able to review or edit papers but students are welcome to ask specific questions related to the research and writing process.
