GC-621/GC-691 Capstone Courses

Welcome (and How to Use this Guide)

The Bellack Library is here to support you throughout your entire capstone process from development to execution. On this guide, we have compiled the best of the library's resources, as well as other external sources and tools, that will help you create a top notch capstone project. I recommend bookmarking this page so that you can refer to it when necessary.

This first page has the materials for our in class sessions. I have also linked the e-textbook for your capstone course and an infographic that explains how the library can support you and your project.
