Research Support for Students

Group instruction is not always the best or only way to support our students' research. In addition to the Research Guides, we have provided other types of  research help for the students. Feel free to point your students to them - all found on the Library Website:

Research Guides: when you click on this page, you'll see the complete list of research guides, a list of research guides for specific courses (I'm always happy to create one for your courses - just ask!), a list of other types of research and "how to guides," e.g., Book Reviews, Biography, guides to citation management software, etc.

Research Roadmap:  find basic information about the research process, including how to choose a topic,  find articles, evaluate information, etc. There is also a link to a series of interactive tutorials covering selected resources (e.g., CATQuest, Academic Search Premier) and various aspects of the research process (e.g., evaluating information)

Citation Guides:  major styles are represented

And of course, students can always schedule an appointment with me for an individual consultation.
