Literature Surveys

Read: Turabian 3 & 4
Review: Turabian 10.1 (you read this already)

Organize: Decide if you are going to keep track of references in citeulike (supports group work), in Papers (best for individual work), as index cards, or in some other fashion. Your reference stack will be due 10/20 (1 and a half weeks from now). Get set up NOW so you can add references and summaries as you read, along the lines recommended in Turabian.
