This workshop is for graduate students starting work on their theses and dissertations, working on their proposals,  or who would like more guidance on using the library for in-depth research on a particular topic.

We will start with an overview of the literature review and its place in a research project, thesis, or dissertation in different disciplines.  From there we will move into some of the best strategies and resources for finding the information you need using the U of I Library. We will help you to choose the best places to search for articles and conference proceedings in your field, as well as find dissertations from U of Illinois and at other schools. The session will include individualized time to find and discuss your area of research. To make the workshop customized to the participants, the instructor will email you before the class with a few questions about your research.

Improving Your Library Research Skills is an alternative workshop if you want an introduction to the U of I library not specific to the literature review process.

Developing better research skills is just a tweet away. Learn to find sources, manage information, and share your research with the world: https://twitter.com/IllinoisLibrary
