I’m very excited to tell you all about Virtual Research Workshops! Starting this fall, all SNHU students can sign up for hour-long research workshops. This series of workshops will be hosted by Shapiro librarians and will cover all kinds of helpful information for diving into your research.
Check out the Shapiro library calendar to explore the available workshops and sign up for the workshops that fit your schedule.
In the Calendar, you’ll see a few different workshops.
Starting in September, look for Search & Research: Mastering the library databases.
Thursday, September 5 @ 6pm EST
Friday, September 13 @ Noon EST
Thursday, September 26 @ 6pm EST
Tuesday, October 15 @ 8pm EST
Search results irrelevant or alarmingly small? Join SNHU librarians to choose the best Shapiro library resources for your project and learn search strategies to get the most out of them! In this workshop, you’ll learn about constructing effective searches and how to modify them when the results you want aren’t returned right away. Bring your research topic if you have one for real time feedback.
This fall, you’ll see another workshop, Finding Great Research.
Tuesday, September 17 @ 8pm EST
This workshop is available for a limited time through a collaboration with the fantastic SNHU Online Writing Center. This workshop includes an overview of resources available to you and a brief introduction to searching Shapiro library databases and evaluating sources. As our other workshops get up and running, they will cover the same content in greater depth.
In November, look out for Be a Research Skeptic: A crash course in source evaluation.
Unsure if the resources you’ve found are high quality? Join SNHU librarians to discuss source evaluation, credibility and bias. Evaluating sources can be daunting, but Shapiro librarians can help! In this workshop, we’ll cover indicators of suitability for resources in Shapiro library databases and on the web.
Next spring, you’ll also see Navigating Your Library: A road map to available resources.
Not sure where to start your research? Join SNHU librarians to learn about the different types of resources and services available to you through the Shapiro library. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to identify the kinds of sources appropriate for your project. Bring your research topic if you have one for real time feedback.
Sign up for whichever workshop (or combinations of workshops) work best for you. We look forward to seeing you online!
