Research Skills Webinars start Sept. 25

If you find searching the library catalog and databases baffling or wonder how to tell a “reputable” source from a poor one, we have a webinar for you!

Starting Monday September 25, the library is offering a series of webinars for those new to research as well as those new to Georgia State University’s particular research tools and collections. These one-hour webinars are open to everybody (even faculty!) but are especially designed to meet the research challenges typical of freshmen and sophomore students.
