Faced with a research assignment this semester? Does the phrase “cite your sources” send chills up your spine? Let the Library help ease your frustrations and anxiety. Join us at one of our Learn@the Library workshops this semester and learn about books, e-books, databases, and NoodleBib.
The first two sessions occur this Tuesday and Wednesday, Jan 24 and 25. On Tuesday learn about databases, your source of articles. On Wednesday learn how to find books – both print and digital – in our collection.
Sessions begin at 2:30 p.m. in the library’s Research Center, located on the first floor behind the Reference desk. 15 minutes in one of these sessions may save hours of frustration later.
