What are your learning outcomes for this session?
Access library catalog and article databases
Develop a search strategy based on their research topic
Differentiate between scholarly journals and magazines
Access full text of articles when available and properly utilize
inter-library loan when necessary
Identify appropriate information for bibliography
Other notes: Students will be using the library for similar projects in most
courses throughout the 2 year program so this introduction is more to have
them understand the use of the databases and ILL to retrieve peer-reviewed
articles than to complete one specific assignment. Thank you!
