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!
