Welcome (back, for some!) to the University of Memphis' University Libraries! This Research Guide will assist you in learning what the Libraries have to offer you!

Writing Groups and Dissertation Resources

As a graduate student, you will likely be asked to write so sort of capstone document (a thesis or dissertation). These can be extremely challenging to do, taxing yourself mentally and emotionally.
