Modern college undergraduates in America generally come to the classroom with no instruction at all in writing the traditional, lucid, formal essay. This small guide to college students will illustrate, clearly and logically, those principles of inquiry, curiosity, discovery, and enthusiasm which will vitalize their future academic careers and their lives as rational and thoughtful adults. A significant number of other texts have appeared over the past decades which also lead the freshman or sophomore student through the processes of doing research and analysis -both on the scientific and the historical method. Few, however, offer an adequate introduction to the new technical methods for identifying, recovering, and assembling relevant research information.
