I spent the better part of an hour reviewing this site for use with college freshmen during their research paper unit. I was very impressed with its organization and layout: it would be very easy for students to navigate through the site, finding the particular topics they wanted. There are illustrations and links that help make the material readable and provide opportunity for students to try out the sources referred to. The material is very basic: any student could understand what is being presented. Unfortunately, the links on this site to scholarly databases are (necessarily) proprietary. Therefore, students at other colleges will be unable to access from this site the kind of authoritative, scholarly material most teachers prefer they use for their research papers. The value of this site is thus limited for students at large.
At one point the link is provided to a site called www.researchpaper.com. I was concerned lest this be one of those ready-made sites freshmen are so fond of, that provide topics with pre-selected quotes and sources they can use in their paper without searching for them themselves. I couldn't get the link to work, though; nor could I access this site by typing in the URL given, so I still don't know what kind of site this is.
