The library is offering a new workshop series, Information Literacy Research Labs. A Research Lab is a 1-hour workshop hosted by a librarian outside of class, which supports and enhances the learning students do in class and on their own to prepare for class. These labs are focused workshopping sessions that both helps students with research assignments and provides an introduction to increasingly sophisticated strategies as they navigate the research process (topic development, searching for sources, revising a researching question and refining a thesis).
Each lab is tailored of an increasingly complex research process:
A research plan is a living document that researchers use to organize their thoughts on a research project. Creating a research plan will help you make the transition from writing opinion based papers to writing college-level “research papers” where you synthesize outside research to support your perspective.
