Integrating Your Sources
You’ve searched for articles and books and you have a list of sources that are on your topic. Now how are you supposed to use them in your paper? In this workshop, staff from the Writing Center and a librarian will take you through the process of integrating those sources in your paper. Learn how to quote and paraphrase while avoiding plagiarism and keeping your voice the focus of your paper. Includes quiz.
More Than Books: What the Library Can Do for You
Helpful, friendly people. Convenient online articles and books. A multimedia lab. Places to study for groups and for individuals. Coffee. Games. Current print books. Where can you find all of this great stuff? In the Dunbar Library! If you still think all libraries have to offer are dusty old books then come discover all the cool things the library offers you for work and for fun!
Stop Searching and Start Finding
Sorting through different information sources can be stressful. You’ve heard that using the library databases give you better results, but they can be confusing and overwhelming. In this workshop, we demystify databases and offer suggestions that will help you to find better results faster and easier. Includes quiz.
Detecting CRAAP: Evaluating Information Sources
How do you know if the article you found is good enough to use for your assignment? Learn strategies for evaluating sources whether you find them on the Internet, in the library, or in the library’s databases. Students practice applying the CRAAP Test criteria to information sources.
Citing Your Sources
We all know that plagiarism is bad, but is avoiding plagiarism the only reason to cite? Why do we have to follow all the pesky rules about capitalization, punctuation, and numbering? And why are there so many different styles? In this workshop, we provide an overview of the reasons for citing, guidelines for when to cite and when it's not necessary, and how to find answers to your questions about formatting.
