Essential Research Skills: Choosing the best sources for your topic

Date: Wednesday, Oct. 8, 12:10-1:30

Location: Robarts LIbrary. e-classroom, 4th floor, room 4033. Directions

Description:With so much information available - not just scholarly articles but news sources, government publications, websites, social media -  researchers often struggle with choosing the best materials for their needs.

Through lecture, discussion and hands-on exercises, this workshop will help you:

  • develop your own criteria for evaluating the value of a potential source depending on your context
  • recognize external markers of quality
  • take into account academic impact and influence
  • take into account the role different sources play in your writing
