Student in the library using a laptop wearing headphones Check out our upcoming online workshops for spring! These are free of charge and open to all GSU students, faculty and staff. This spring, we have scheduled:

Can You Believe it? What’s real, what’s fake, what’s scholarly?: We all agree that we want accurate and trustworthy information, but how do you know which sources to believe? What clues suggest that information might be “fake”? How do evidence and opinion feature into the reliability of sources? February 7.

Online Library Research Basics: Learn the basics of using research databases to find articles, e-books, videos and more. Includes the GALILEO Discover tool, search tips and how to identify databases for your subject. February 14.

Zotero: Get started with Zotero, the powerful citation application that allows you to save references, create bibliographies automatically, and build a personal database of the sources you use. February 21.

Literature Research Basics: Learn the basics of finding online information resources about literature topics including author biographies, literary criticism/analysis, and literature movements. March 6.

These are online workshops held via WebEx conference — you’ll need a computer with speakers or headphones. Register at the links above, and check with the workshop instructors if you have any questions.
