Research Across the Curriculum

Throughout Freshman year, students will come to the Learning Commons each month with a different class to learn and practice valuable research skills including:

  • model digital citizenship,
  • the MLA documentation style,
  • the inquiry method of research,
  • online search techniques and strategies, and
  • how to evaluate and annotate resources.

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 Google Scholar and RefSeek.
