The Goal: To help you be well prepared to conduct your Literature Review
Writing a literature review is sometimes described as “telling a research story.”
“A literature review is a document or section of a document that collects key sources on a topic and discusses those sources in conversation with each other (also called synthesis).” (Purdue OWL)
“Writing teachers often say synthesis is like hosting a dinner party: imagine all your sources are together in a room, discussing your topic. What are they saying to each other?” (Purdue OWL)
