Kirkwood librarian Steve Sickels is offering a new 50 minute workshop for Kirkwood Distance Learning students called “Successful Remote Research“.
It is a presentation for distance learning students of online access to Kirkwood’s hosted library research databases demonstrating the following:
- Approach the finding of supporting materials using various books, video, periodical databases and the internet
- Obtaining immediate full text, downloads and interlibrary loan materials
- Illustrate the narrowing of a topic, the transition to controlled vocabulary and the recursive nature of research
- Address evaluation and citation of resources
Students can best utilize this presentation by trying out the information and attending the next week’s session and noting the distance learning students’ questions and experiences.
The workshop will be held during the activity hour (11 – 11:50 AM) on Tuesday, February 10th in KTS 1 classroom. The follow-up workshop will be held during the activity hour (11 – 11:50 AM) on Tuesday, February 17th in KTS 1 classroom.
If you can’t make it this month, don’t worry, Steve will offer the workshop again on March 24th and 31st (same times and locations).
