Workshop Description

Research is infinite—but your literature review is not. How do you know what sources to review, how to access those sources, how to organize the literature review for logical coherence, and what sources to leave out? Come to this workshop to learn research and writing strategies that will help you narrow your research topic, cover the essentials of that topic, and set parameters that will result in a comprehensive and concise literature review.

Bring a laptop (or use one of the laptops available at the Libraries), a topic for your literature review, and an idea about relevant databases and/or journals that you can search in for your topic.  A librarian will be joining the workshop to help with anyone unsure of which databases they might want to use for a topic search.
