Research & Writing in the Library: Helping with the Scholarly Conversation: Home

A Faculty Workshop

In terms of improving research and writing, students need more than knowing the mechanics of a database or the scope of a particular database.  Students need help getting started, establishing a context for their project, and choosing the right source at the right time.  In short, more context, less button pushing mechanics.

This LibGuide provides key findings from Project Information Literacy and suggestions on ways to improve your students' experience and research process as they take part in the scholarly conversation.
