Two GOLD workshops (Ruby Certificate) will be held this week in Milne, starting with Finding Articles Efficiently on Tuesday (2/23) from 2-3 p.m. in Milne 104. Librarian Michelle Costello will help students learn the basic mechanics of a database, which could include web engines like Google, the databases subscribed to by the Library, or a free database on the web. Students will discover helpful tips and strategies that are used in any kind of database to help improve their searches, find better resources, and save time.
On Wednesday (2/24), Librarian Tracy Paradis is offering From Page to Press to Peer Review, a workshop designed to help students understand that all information is not created equal. During the publishing cycle, scholarly information goes through intense scrutiny. Understanding the ins and outs of scholarly publishing allows the researcher to select appropriate material for university-level work. Students will learn what constitutes scholarliness, what is meant by “peer reviewed/refereed” and how to find scholarly sources. The workshop will be held in Milne 104 from 2-3 p.m.
