Assignment 3: Literature Review The third assignment, the Literature Review, is a report of the published information on an issue or topic. A researcher studies the literature in an effort to determine what is known and to determine varying viewpoints when there is a controversy. The purpose of the literature review is to win support or determine what further research needs to be conducted. Thus, the literature review is more than a collection of information: it includes analysis and interpretation of the significance and implications in light of a problem that the researcher defines. A literature review may be a complete report or it may be a part of another report. Objectives This literature review assignment is designed to: Help you understand the reasons for a literature review; Help you gain practice in library research and the use of published sources; Prepare you for the recommendation report assignment.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
