The Perfect Term Paper

Introduction.

This guide is aimed at AST students faced with the frequent task of writing essays, term papers or reports (words that we will use here interchangeably). This is obviously not a comprehensive manual covering the intricacies of research, writing and formatting. There are recommended resources for this on our Writing Guides page.

Nor will this guide make you an instant expert in accessing the many resources of the Atlantic School of Theology Library. See our librarians for help with that.

It is hoped, however, that this tutorial will:

  • Provide a rough guide to the various processes that combine to produce a quality essay.
  • Alert you to some of the resources and services available at the library and beyond.
  • Ease anxieties you may have if writing university level papers for the first time.
  • Do these things in a friendly, accessible way.
