Research 101

Please join me for an informative session on how to begin research with library resources.  There are so many different options to choose, it makes it difficult to know which way to go.  Learn the alternative to Google and get experience with one of our librarians in the proper way to tackle your research question and get to sources that are valid and useful for your research.  This session is open to anyone who would like to know more about what the library offers. 

Offered by Calvin Craig, this class provides basic orientation on how you access library resources, access off-campus, including hands on use, and a Q&A session at the end.

Upcoming sessions are scheduled for the following dates and times:

Mango Languages Workshops

Please join me for an informative session on one of our more popular databases, Mango Languages. Mango uses real-life situations and actual conversations to more effectively teach a new language. By listening to and repeating after material designed from native conversations, you’ll not only learn the individual words and phrases, you’ll know how they’re used in practical situations and conversations. You’ll learn more than grammar, vocabulary and conjugation, you’ll learn how to communicate.

Offered by Calvin Craig, this class provides basic orientation to how you access Mango Languages, establishing a login, hands on use with a Q&A session at the end.

Upcoming sessions are scheduled for the following dates and times:

Tuesday, June 16 9am – 9:30am
