SSI2-179: Casting Shadows, Casting Light: A Russian Mystery: The BEAM Framework

BEAM Framework

 

BEAM is an acronym intended to help you think about the various ways you might use sources when writing a researched argument. Joseph Bizup, an English professor at Boston University, outlined the framework in a 2008 article. The idea has since been refined and adapted by many others.

Creating a RefWorks Account

Current University of Puget Sound students, faculty and staff may set up a RefWorks account.  You will have access to your account for so long as Collins Library maintains its subscription, including after graduation.  Your RefWorks account includes 10GB of document storage, unlimited sharing inside and outside the institution, easy institution-wide sharing, phone and email tech support, training and more.

To create a RefWorks account:

  1. Go to http://refworks.proquest.com and click the “sign up” link.
  2. Fill in your information, making sure to use your University of Puget Sound email address (you can’t sign up with @yahoo.com, @gmail.com, etc.).  Using your institutional email address will help RefWorks know that you are entitled to an institutional account (with all the benefits mentioned above!).

Once you activate your account (you'll receive an email with a link to complete the registration process), you’ll get access immediately and can get started managing your research!

Still using the legacy RefWorks program?  Go to "Migrating to New RefWorks" for more information.
