Assignment 3: Individual Research Project/Paper

The other assignments in this course are team assignments; this individual assignment provides you with the opportunity to focus on a digital library topic of personal interest.

Assignment Goals

The goal of this assignment is for you to focus on and learn more about a research area of particular interest to you and, ideally, develop a foundation for further work you will do in this area. As discussed in class, a broad range of work could fit this assignment goal, both in terms of how it relates to digital libraries and the form your assignment deliverable takes.

Assignment Deliverable

The deliverable for this assignment will be negotiated on an individual basis. Depending on the project, it could take the form of an online prototype or design document, a traditional research paper, a research study plan, or some combination of these.

You should send me an e-mail with a proposal for what you would like to pursue for this assignment by March 11th. We will discuss your proposal and agree on what your deliverable will be. Your final deliverable is due on May 17th at noon.


This assignment is worth 25% of your final grade.
