Sample Prospectus Please note that in this sample I was vague about some of the primary sources. This is OK for a prospectus, as long as you can reasonably conclude that there is some valuable material to be found in them. In your final draft, you need to be more specific about the sources. For instance, in the APS manuscript collections, I might use: Benjamin Franklin Papers, Hays Calendar Part 8, American Philosophical Society, Philadelphia, PA. In your paper, you should cite the precise document that you used (e.g., Rittenhouse to Franklin, 4 September 1772, Benjamin Franklin Papers, etc.). Adapt this system of citation to whatever your primary sources are. Note also that I exceeded the 200-word limit I recommended in the instructions (by about 65).

    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.
