How do you know which sources will teach you the most about your research question?  By examining the work of other successful researchers. In this informative and interactive workshop, students will learn how to strategically use literary sources in the research and how best to rely on subject librarians.

Learning Objectives: By participating in this workshop you will:

  • Consult a mentor text in their discipline in order to learn what types of sources are most promising.

  • Consider which types of sources are best to consult at the beginning of a project and which work best in later stages.

  • Develop strategies for collaborating with experts on campus, especially subject librarians.
