Research Essentials

Library. Trust.

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.
