Guidelines in Writing the Library Research Paper (Content)

This paper discusses the content of your LRP, from Intro-Body-Conclusion.

So how do you write the Introduction? Remember that the introduction acquaints the readers with the rationale behind the work (research). The introduction must reflect these three aspects: background of the study, problem and objectives, and the significance of the study. The introduction must be interesting enough to catch the attention of the readers. You may start by giving questions, an anecdote, etc.

For example, if you are studying about children’s understanding of death as shown in Disney films, you may start by saying:

INTRODUCTION

Death is an aspect of life that is not only inevitable but also painful, especially for children. Children do not have the knowledge or experience that adults have; thus, they are often unprepared to deal with the death of a loved one or even of a beloved cartoon character in a movie. Furthermore, it is not until about 10 years of age that healthy children achieve an understanding that death is irreversible, permanent, and inevitable (Brent, Speece, Lin, Dong, & Yang, 1996).

And then you may include a discussion about the popularity of Disney films on children.

Disney films attract children because of its aesthetic elements constructed within the context of good vs, bad. Blah blah blah blah

After this, you need to state the problem (ideally in 100 words) not necessarily in question form, and the 3-4 main objectives or 3-4 guide questions (remember that the objectives are just the statement of the guide question, written declaratively.)

The themes embedded within Disney films blur the boundaries between reality and fantasy. Because of its popularity, it has a tendency to “corrupt” children’s perception. With the popularity of Disney films among children, it is worth knowing how it Disney films portray death and how it affects children perception of death. Blah blah blah. Blah blah blah. Blah blah blah. Blah blah blah. Blah blah blah. Blah blah blah. Disney films portray fuzzy presentation of death leaves children mentally and emotionally confused of what death is. Blah blah blah. Blah blah blah.

This paper will present how children understand death in general, how Disney films portray death in terms of character status, depiction of death, death status, emotional reaction, and causality, and how these portrayal affect childern’s understanding of death.

Or it may also be written in question form:

If death is a concept that many young children do not have a working understanding of, then why is it such a prominent theme in children’s media, specifically in Disney movies? Do Disney’s portrayals influence children’s comprehension of death?

This should be followed by the discussion of the significance of the study.

This study is important because it analyzes a concept that is rarely discussed to children: death. In order to examine the possible effect that death scenes in Disney films might have for children, it is necessary to understand how children conceive of death. Knowing the impact it creates on children may guide movie producers and parents on how to dicuss important yet sensitive issues blah blah blah blah. (Expound, explain thoroughly)

The next section should now discuss the body of your LRP, in accordance with your final outline. However, DO NOT write it in this manner:
