All of the tools that students need to write dynamic papers and create innovative projects will be on display in a series of workshops from the University of Georgia Libraries.
In the Spring into Research workshop series, librarians and staff will lead virtual discussions on navigating library resources, from the latest online journals to historical material held in digital archives, as well as using citation management software and technologies available for data visualization, map-making, virtual reality, and more.
The series kicks off with an overview of library resources and services at 3 p.m., Monday, March 8. The workshops continue on weekdays through Friday, March 19, offering information into a variety of tools and services, such as the Makerspace at the Science Library and the GIS Lab at the Main Library.
While sessions are open to students of any major and any degree program, some of the sessions are tailored to specific needs, such as sessions on literature reviews and systematic reviews that are helpful for graduate students writing a thesis or dissertation.
“As librarians, we are here to help students find and apply the knowledge that they find in journals, books, databases, and online resources. These workshops can give students an understanding of how we can help them in their academic journey,” said Kristin Nielsen, head of the Libraries’ research and instruction department.
