We offer two workshops in this “Research Essentials” series. These may be taken in any order or as their own separate learning sessions.
1. Avoiding Academic Dishonesty:
Plagiarism is a serious offense that carries penalties as severe as suspension or expulsion. We’ll help you cite right and learn to evaluate your sources before using them in a paper.
2. Discovering Articles, Books, Media & More:
We provide access to thousands of resources. Learn how to develop a research question, refine your topic and effectively find the research you need quickly.
