Art History Thesis: Keeping Track

Chicago Manual of Style

Keeping track across the blocks

For a ten-page paper you write in a matter of weeks (or days (or hours!)), it's not too hard to keep track of ideas and citations.

For a thesis spanning your senior year, you may need some help. Ttry using some of these resources, and try them now instead of waiting until you are in crisis mode:

  • RefWorks (see the box at the left) to keep track of references and format your bibliography.
  • Free personal accounts in databases such as Art & Architecture Complete and JSTOR to save searches or citations for later.
  • Evernote is my favorite note-taking and web-clipping application. Synchs notes from your computer to an account on the web to your moblie device, accessible wherever you go.
  • The Writing Center, particularly Molly Gross, can help you at any point in the process.
  • The CAT Lab in the Tutt Library Learning Commons, particularly Weston Taylor, can help you with scanning and using digital images. Managing large collections of images has proved to be a logistical and technical problem for students in the past.
