Writing a History Paper

Evaluating Your Research

Take the time to look at your materials and make sure that you've accumulated enough to

  • meet the requirements of the assignment
  • support your thesis
  • write a cogent, well documented paper

If you have gaps in your research or are having trouble locating information you need, this would be a good time to consult a reference librarian. If you've written down the databases used and your search strategies, this will easily let the reference librarian see what you've done, and to offer alternatives.
