RESEARCH EDUCATION

The Research Education program provided by the Mardigian Library offers course-related instruction to help students learn how to conduct academic research and become more information literate. Librarians collaborate with faculty to develop individualized sessions for classes that can include:

  • Demonstrations of Summon, a tool that allows researchers to search multiple library databases simultaneously.
  • Targeted resources from the library's 400+ research databases.
  • Searching techniques to help students use these databases effectively.
  • Evaluation techniques of information resources that will help students learn to distinguish appropriate academic resources from the flood of web pages and other sources available.
