Advance Your Research sessions set for March 19
March 4, 2014
VCU Libraries will present Advance Your Research on March 19, a group of walk-in workshops for graduate students and faculty designed to help make their research process better, faster and smarter. Sessions are free and open to all. First come, first seated.
"We know from the conversations we have with graduate students and faculty that VCU researchers need these kinds of sessions," said Bettina Peacemaker, assistant head for academic outreach. "They want to streamline their research process, and we have resources that will make their work easier. So, we designed these sessions filled with the kind of information we've been providing in one-on-one consultations or in classroom settings."
9:30 a.m. Check-in opens. Enjoy a light breakfast and network.
10 a.m. Data, Data, Everywhere: Uncover collections of data that you can analyze, use, or reuse in your| thesis or dissertation.
11:30 a.m. More Than "Just Browsing": Crack the Library of Congress classification code. Discover tools and tactics to find related, useful material beyond the search box.
