    I was reading through some of my old college work... would it be ok if I posted that as a Hub?

    Also, does citing books I used for research help with Hub credulity?

    As long as it is your work, it would be fine. I was thinking of doing the same. As long as it conforms to hubpages T&C's.

    I don't see why not. My son is studying for his professorship in History, and he frequently posts his papers. Go for it!

    Yes, some of your coursework from your college days would make an excellent hub article. I look forward to reading it after it is finished.

    I think that if it interesting and insightful, entertaining and or useful to people, then I would say go for it. I write recipes, stories and fan fiction for my hub, and I have found that generally people like reading what I have posted.
    To me hubs are about what interests you, and something that you might think others may enjoy reading. College work in particular would be a great idea so that other students who may be taking the same class or course can read your notes and be able to use it for their own research.
    Good luck, and good question.

    I think that should be fine as it is your original work. Regarding the credibility of the writing, it helps to have references cited or videos confirming what is wriiten, though I don't think references are a must.
    Any work that would interest readers should be welcome if it's original.

    I was just thinking about doing this. Thanks for the great question!

    I have used some of my papers from my History courses as a basis for hubs.

    I generally summerize the papers a little. Reading a ten or twenty page paper can be hard work on a computer screen, but HubPages does offer added extra insights as you can add graphics in the form of pictures and video easily.

    If you use any persons work or ideas you should cite that work. Adding a bibliography and citations will help others find ideas. You can also use the Amazon ad capsule to link directly to any books which you would recommend.
    Hope this helps

    I think it would be fine to use your college papers. I've used mine as well. I just made sure to site my sources correctly.

    First, I wanted to thank you for the Lots-of-Luck spell that you have casted for me late last year; I must confess that the good luck that I have had for the last six months have been amazing, and I cannot thank you enough for them; things that were on the far ends of my imagination just a year ago have materialized, and I must say I am very content with what was brought about by your effort...thanks to Dr gboco(gbocotemple@y

    I think it would be great.  At least it will get put to a good use and not just sitting in a box somewhere.  Go ahead and post it.  The only stipulation is it can absolutely not be anywhere else on the web.  But if this is the only place you post it then go ahead.  I can't wait to read it.  smile

    Absolutely - it's still your own creative property. If it's somehow been published before, indicate it in your hub here. Hope we see some of your pieces soon!
