Research Education - Schedule Fall Sessions Now
The Library Research Education program provides course-related instruction that can help your students learn how to do academic research. Librarians can work with you to develop a session that can include:
- Demonstrations of Central Search, a new tool that allows researchers to search multiple library databases simultaneously,
- Individual resources from the 150+ research databases provided by the library,
- Searching skills so students are able to use the research tools more effectively,
- Evaluating information resources to help students learn to distinguish appropriate academic resources from the flood of web pages and other sources available,
- And much more...
We look forward to working with you!
