30 Minutes to Better Research: Finding and Using Journals on 10/10

This week's topic in the library's series 30 Minutes to Better Research: Learning at the Library will focus on finding and using journals. Do you know how to find out if the library subscribes to a journal or newspaper? Do you know how to find journal articles? Come to this session on finding and using journals to learn how to improve your journal searching skills. This class is taught by Chris Hudson, Director of Collection Services. Bring your questions!

Class this week will be held on Thursday, October 10 at 4:00pm. (Yes, we are teaching the class over October Break, so if you are in town, you should come.)


Date: Thursdays
Time: 4:00-4:30pm
Location: The classroom in Library A (the modular building closest to Middle Path)
What: Each week, a librarian will teach a session focusing on one or two of the library's databases or services. No registration is required. For each class you attend this semester, you will be entered into a drawing at the end of the semester to star in your very own READ poster.
