Join Kelly for a four part workshop series that will pull back the curtain on library research. We hope to see you for one or all of the workshops listed! If you attend 3 or more LITS workshops over the course of the semester, you will get a prize. (Does anyone remember the treasure chest that the bank had? It’s like that but with research skills and library swag).
These workshops count for AMP Connections credit, but all are welcome!
This workshop will introduce you to researching in college. We’ll learn about different source types and where to find them, navigate the website, and start practicing finding library resources. Please bring your curiosity (and you’re lunch, if you’d like) as we dive into library research!
Thursday, 9/15 from 11:55-12:50 @ the Library’s Innovation Space
Whew, you’ve made it through Research 101, and you’re feeling more comfortable with using the library’s website and catalog. It’s time to level up your library skills!
