Welcome to the Literature Review Challenge for Undergrads!
This Challenge includes tools and strategies to help you take your literature searching to the next level. The activities are presented as daily "challenges" that participants might accomplish over the course of one week. However, each activity stands alone and can be completed separately from the others and at a time that is convenient.
Each day, for five days, you will engage with brief tasks designed to help you make the most of your literature review process, including refining your research question, strategic literature searching, accessing paywalled sources, organizing and synthesizing ideas between sources, and easily creating bibliographies in the citation style of your choice.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to Jen Bonnet, the designer of this Challenge with any questions.
The University of Maine recognizes that it is located on Marsh Island in the homeland of the Penobscot Nation, where issues of water and territorial rights, and encroachment upon sacred sites, are ongoing. Penobscot homeland is connected to the other Wabanaki Tribal Nations — the Passamaquoddy, Maliseet, and Micmac — through kinship, alliances and diplomacy. The university also recognizes that the Penobscot Nation and the other Wabanaki Tribal Nations are distinct, sovereign, legal and political entities with their own powers of self-governance and self-determination.
