IDH 4031: The Nature of Writing

This guide will help you conduct your research to trace the stories of natural locations or living things and provide tips for presenting those findings in a conference poster.

What's in this guide?

This guide will assist you in finding primary -- and some secondary -- sources related to the locations and living things you select for your poster presentation. However, it is not meant to be exhaustive. If you hit a roadblock and need assistance, please feel free to contact me.

I look forward to seeing some of your final projects!
