Instructor Resources

The Research Paper Navigator is designed to be flexible and could be incorporated into your class in any number of ways:

  • Link to it from your Blackboard Class Site.
  • Ask students to try it out when you give them their research paper assignment.
  • Assign students a specific section such as Avoid Plagiarism or Research Your Topic.
  • Consult with a librarian to develop a specialized subject guide for your class. If you would like to have a subject guide for research added to the Research Paper Navigator for your class, contact Beth Rohloff (

Students who used the Research Paper Navigator commented that they learned:

  • Where to find relevant information and what keywords to use in my search
  • Better time management
  • How to cite sources effectively
