Notes

Abstract: Subject librarians at the University of North Texas have partnered with the graduate school and teaching faculty to help students achieve a major milestone in the graduate life cycle – writing and successfully defending the dissertation or thesis proposal. This presentation will share the impediments UNT graduate students faced, the partners gathered to support the students, and the resulting Proposal Preparation Workshop, which the library has offered since Fall 2015. Participants will be given time to reflect on their own institutions and record on a worksheet potential impediments, partners, and actions that may support their students in writing and defending their proposals. The presentation will conclude with Q&A and a discussion of participants’ ideas.
