AVIA 490 Aviation Capstone Research: Home

Welcome to your Aviation Capstone Research Guide!

Use this guide to help you locate more information on your capstone topics -- you will likely find that combining a variety of source types (such as: histories and handbooks at Holman Library; industry (trade) publications, news stories, and research; government reports and statistics; and so on) will help you build the most complete picture of your topic possible.

On the 'Capstone Topics' tab, you will find some suggested topics as well as guidelines and examples from Purdue's Online Writing lab to help you plan the structure of your capstone paper.

If you need assistance, or would like to locate a specific type of data / information for your topic that is proving tricky, you can email me directly (my email link is in the "Librarian" section on this page) or connect with a reference librarian via 24/7 online chat under the 'Find Help' tab!

Amanda Chin
Hello! I'm Amanda, a friendly GRC librarian. My subject areas are Fine Arts, IEP, TSW, Math, and Aviation. I also am the library lead or co-lead for open educational resources (OER), diversity, equity, and inclusion work (DEI), assessment, and the library website and Twitter.

Feel free to email or call me with any questions or concerns you may have about a class assignment, research, or anything else library-related!

I respond fairly quickly on weekdays, but there may be a delay on weeknights and weekends. If you are working late at night or on a weekend, you can also try contacting our general librarian email, or use our 24/7 Ask a Librarian chat service. You can find more information about these things on the Holman Library website, in our "Ask a Librarian" page!
