Move Your Research Paper Beyond Good Enough

So you have a big research paper to write? We're here to help! Take your research paper to the next level. In this workshop you'll hear about advanced search strategies, using the Libraries' resources smarter, and organizing your searches and results.

Work Smarter Not Harder: Turn One Good Article Into Several

Got one or two really good sources but need more for your project or paper? Learn to use a source you already have to find additional useful sources by "citation searching." Citation searching can help you find sources both older or newer than the source you are starting with. We'll explore citation searching in discovery tools like Google Scholar, Web of Science and even Wikipedia.

Bibliographies in a Snap: Using Web-Based Citation Tools

Does creating a bibliography make you want to tear your hair out or cry? Ever lose that perfect reference in a stack of notes? Come learn how to use Zotero (a free, web-based tool) and create reference lists or bibliographies with a click of a button. As an added bonus, Zotero also helps you keep track of all the references you find in one place.
