Welcome to the Hallmark University Library! 



Why We Research

We are not looking to just copy and paste information from the textbook or provide a synopsis from the textbook. Instead, as college students, you want to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate the information you have read and apply it to your thoughts and opinions as it relates to you as a professional and student. (Athanassiou, McNett, & Harvey, 2003; Vosen, 2008)
