Research Across the Curriculum

Throughout Freshman year, students will come to the Learning Commons each month with a different class to learn about digital citizenship, the MLA format, the inquiry method of research, online search techniques and strategies, and how to evaluate and organize the information. They will become familiar with the excellent resources provided in our collection and become comfortable searching for information using print resources, the statewide databases, online encyclopedias, and e-books as well as scholarly Internet search engines like RefSeek.
