“Be Gay, Do Research”: Research Skills Workshop
February 13 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Where did you learn how to “do research”? Do you know where to start? Do you know when to stop? How do you find relevant articles? Are there parts of this process that you are unsure about?
Research can be a really confusing endeavour, especially when it seems like something that you’re just expected to know how to do on your own. And at a large institution like U of T, all the great resources that you hear about can blend together in a haze of information overload. Let us help you get on the right track before you tackle your assignments during the Reading Week. Join us for an interactive session to learn and practice using research tools together. Bring your assignments!
Two queer librarians in training are here to answer your questions about navigating the research process, and show you the tools available to you as a U of T student, such as:
· Knowing what a librarian can help you with (let’s demystify all of the great resources you may be missing out on!).
· Knowing how to identify and search for different types of content.
· Finding the right databases for your specific research needs.
· Figuring out when to use a specialized database and when to use a comprehensive database.
· Searching the databases and employing the tools they provide to find the best article for your needs.
Registration is limited. You will receive an email confirming your registration.
