Information on Research Project Calculator

Posted: October 10, 2012

The University Libraries has recently implemented a Research Project Calculator (RPC) that offers students a simple and comprehensive step-by-step model for navigating the research process.

The RPC allows students to enter a due date for a research assignment and, in return, it "chunks" the project into steps, providing sources for help along the way.  Students have the option to have the steps emailed to them as reminders throughout the process.  Our RPC is an instantiation of the University of Minnesota's Assignment Calculator which UM has made open source.

It is also linked from the "Research" landing page under Quick Links (http://www.libraries.psu.edu/psul/research.html).
