This guide was developed by the University Seminar Science and the Human Experience team to bring together different types of resources required to understand and research the themes, policies, ethics, law, public opinion, etc. included in the course.

The broad themes of the guide are: The Trajectory of Human Development, Illness, Healing and Wellness, Human Identity and tools, such as, Finding Op-Eds and Citing Sources that will assist in pulling the research together. Each theme is subdivided into various areas and within these may be found links to articles, newsfeeds, reference sources, blogs/wikis, books, web sites, and various multimedia resources.

While there is a large amount of content, it is not exhaustive, nor is it meant to be. However, feel free to suggest resources that you feel will add to the educational richness of the guide by emailing Regina Raboin, Science Research & Instruction Librarian or any of the seminar's faculty.
