Our session learning outcomes are as follows:

Libary Day 1: 

  • Student will develop an appropriately narrow research question in order to be able to identify key concepts.
  • Students will extract relevant keywords and related search terms from their thesis statement or research question in order to develop a targeted search strategy
  • Student will identify related search terms (broad, narrow and parallel) in order to adjust their search strategy.


Library Day 2: 

  • Students will distinguish between different types of resources in order to select relevant and reliable sources appropriate to the topic and assignment
  • Students will use abstracts, subject headings and limiters in order to narrow a search successfully
