Scholarship as Conversation: The Conversations

Become part of the community of scholars, researchers, and/or professionals who add new insights and disoveries.

When you read a book or a scientific paper, you silently converse with its writers -- and through them with everyone else they have read. In fact, every time you go to a written source for information, you join a conversation between writers and readers that began more than five thousand years ago. ~ The Craft of Research

1. You and the Instructor

2. You and the Person who Needs to Know
