Library Workshops

RC Fall 2020 Library Workshops

All workshops are on Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. on ZOOM. Registration required.


Books and eBooks: 9/1, 10/6, 11/10 

Effectively search for books, e-books, and other library materials. The workshop will also include an overview of the features of the new library catalog (OneSearch). 



Library Databases: 9/8, 10/13, 11/17 

An overview of commonly used databases such as EBSCOhost Academic Search Complete, eBook Collection, and Opposing Viewpoints. This workshop will include instruction on how to locate scholarly articles and narrow a search to retrieve more relevant information sources. 



Internet Researching: 9/15, 10/20, 11/24 

A workshop focusing on advanced search techniques in Google and other web resources such as Google Scholar and Google Advanced Search to locate information resources appropriate for academic research. 



Avoiding Plagiarism: 9/22, 10/27, 12/1 

The workshop is designed to introduce and examine the legal and ethical issues of information use including highlights of the latest editions of APA, MLA, and CMS format style manuals. Participants will learn about various tools and resources to build and enhance their research assignments to avoid plagiarism and to establish credibility of one’s own work.  



Research Consultation: 9/29, 11/3, 12/8 

Designed for one-one-one consultation between student and librarian based on an assignment objective. Slightly different from previous subject-focused library workshops, research consultation sessions will not include a presentation from the librarian. Instead, students are expected to bring assignment questions to the session for librarian support (similar to reference help and/or library research assistance).
