BEAM method of using sources

When developing a research proposal, it's important to recognize how sources will build upon, inform, and interact with your own research.

The BEAM method, developed by Joseph Bizzup, a rhetoric professor, provides a good model.

Organize your research

Citation mangers are tools that organize your research and help you save time. You can even create bibliographies and in-text citations!

The library supports two citation managers:

  • Zotero is a free, open-source tool that lives in your browser. There are plug-ins for Microsoft Office so you can use it to cite in-text.
  • RefWorks is a subscription-based tool. There are plug-ins for Microsoft Office so you can use it to cite in-text. RefWorks requires a Claremont Colleges Library log-in, but you can continue to use it even after you graduate.

See below for guides on using each of these tools.
