The Topic Tree

This is the topic tree for real

This guide is for paper, project, and Power Point topics for students in introductory courses. All too often, faculty and teachers offer lists of topics gleaned from textbooks that are several years old. These topics miss current issues, give short shrift to the sciences, and probably fail to do justice to many other areas as well.

Though there are decent paper topic sites on the net, many of these are also getting old. Static web pages take time to update, and only their owners or those with server access can revise them.

The Topic Tree is different. Any one with good topics is welcome to share them here. Since librarians, students, faculty, and the general public all have different interests and sets of expertise, letting the whole world add topics should give a large, diverse, and fairly current collection. If enough people help grow the Topic Tree, it might become the best paper topic site on the net.

To add your topics, just find your way to the appropriate branch. Branches are listed under tabs at the top of this page. Some of the branches have all ready subdivided, so choose the most specific branch. Then click the Add a Topic tab. You don't have to give your real name or register to add a topic, and I'll put the topic on its brnach, when I edit the guide. It should be that simple. At least I hope it will be.

NEWS -- As of June 15, 2009, the tree now holds 333 topics. I've split several branches and look forward to splitting a few more and possibly starting a new main branch before the summer is over.
