About Literature Reviews

A literature review is like an annotated bibliography, but more formal, analytical, and narrative. Literature reviews provide an analysis of sources/authors to demonstrate how your research fits within a larger academic conversation. As a result, they are often required for theses and published papers. Depending on the discipline, a literature review might also be called a systematic review, argumentative review, meta-analysis, or a methodological review.

Audience: Undergraduate students. Graduate students are also welcome.

Students interested in this workshop might also be interested in “First Steps with Zotero.” For individual support, reach out to your Personal Librarian or Subject Specialist Librarian.
