Need help with starting your research or citing resources for a research assignment? Then register to attend to our free library research workshops being held at both the Downtown and Parham Road campuses. The workshops we have scheduled for this summer semester include:

  • Research the Smart Way: Getting too many results with that Google search? Need to get a research paper done and not sure how?  Learn how to research the smart way with the Reynolds Librarians. We’ve got everything you need to get started. Here’s what we’ll cover: Creating topic ideas; introduce the library catalog and databases as well as search strategies; how to access databases from home; learn the differences between Google and the library.
  • Cite it Right: APA and MLA: Not sure what MLA or APA citation styles are? Need to know how to do cite properly?  Let the Reynolds Librarians help you get on the right path! Here’s what we’ll cover: Learn what a citation is and how to identify its parts; how to cite a variety of print and online sources in APA and MLA style using citation tools.

Ask your instructor/s if you can receive extra credit for attending these workshops. Looking forward to seeing you at our workshops!

Hot Dogs = Happiness in the Library Open House

Hot dogs & pimento cheese sandwiches made a lot of students happy at the 1st ever ‘Tailgate @ Reynolds Libraries’ this week.  440 folks soaked up the atmosphere, smiled & munched away as the thud of cornhole was heard in the background for our library open house event.  A short hunt for online library resources encouraged students, faculty & staff to investigate library databases… & gather up prizes. Some students even found a book! Tailgate photo
