GSLIS students, have you ever felt that your professors and peers assume that you already know how to be an effective researcher? Are you afraid and embarrassed that you might be exposed as a clumsy and awkward researcher, a library neophyte? Join us for a safe, hands-on, informative exploration of the main library databases of our discipline: LISA, LISTA, and Library Lit. Bring all of your questions. If you have research topics, bring them with you and get started with your research.

 

 

•Experiment with the different facets of the LISA, LISTA, and Library Lit databases.

 

•Learn how to maintain a research log.

 

•Get started on your research project.
