This totally depends on your reserach area. Science? Education? Humanities? 

There are some really, really good guides to getting through these parts of grad school. If I know your area, I could recommend something. There’s one we use in English that details exactly how to do reserach proposals and such.

@Mrs. Spring:  

Here’s the best guide for English: http://www.amazon.com/Graduate-Study-Twenty-First-Century-Humanities/dp/0230100333/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1343143085&sr=8-1&keywords=semenza+graduate+study

It may be too specifically English for you, but it does have some wonderful chapters about grad school in general, the academic community, balancing research and life, etc.

I found this one on library residencies:

http://www.amazon.com/New-Graduate-Experience-Residency-Librarianship/dp/1591588863/ref=sr_1_7?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1343143368&sr=1-7&keywords=graduate+study+library

But I don’t see anything more specifically geared to getting through an MLS.

I can tell you, though, that my mother is a retired reference librarian/asst. director of a regional library, who adored her job. So the librarians I know are working librarians – I don’t know anyone who stayed just in research.

Hope any of this helps!

ETA: See if you can ask any previous students of this class what their process was. Nothing more valuable that a success story of the exact project you’re doing.

@Mrs. Spring:  Wow, trailblazer! That’s cool. I hope you can enjoy your research methods experience. In every field, it tends to be grueling, but it can also be great for broadening the way you think about your discipline.

Good luck!
