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.
