Research 101 e-books event on Monday

The December Research 101 session “Using E-Books to Improve Your Studies” has been rescheduled for Monday, Jan. 20, 2014, during the campus hour on both campuses.

Guest speakers Ralph Laird and Gordana Vitez, from Library Services, will provide helpful tips on using E-Books and the advantages of going digital.

This interactive session promises to provide helpful suggestions to improve research skills, utilize the Library Services resources and explore the benefits of this popular medium.

In this session students will learn:

  • How to navigate the library’s search in order to find ebooks.
  • How to use specific tools in order to maximize the ebook experience.
  • How to download software in order to checkout and read ebooks.

The session is one of several being held throughout the year, sponsored by Niagara Research. Other sessions to be held include presentation skills, work plans, research ethics, working effectively on research teams, and intellectual property.

Students who attend at least five of these sessions throughout the year will earn a Niagara Research Certificate, which can then also be added to the Co-curricular Record.

Registration is required.
