Two new animation videos are now available on the library website. These videos will help students as they begin the library research process.
Picking Your Topic IS Research (3:10) describes how picking a topic isn't set in stone from the get-go. You tweak and refine as you do research. It emphasizes the research process.
From Idea to Library (2:28) tells the story of how an idea goes from a researcher to publication as an article in a journal and how it becomes discoverable in article databases through the library. We hope it helps students better understand the distinctions between an article, a journal, and a database.
