Beyond Google: Understanding Research Databases

This hands-on interactive session is designed to introduce students to methods for accessing Galvin Library’s online publications and best practices for conducting online research.

Learn how fundamental information science concepts are used by specialized research databases to make your searching more effective and efficient than is possible using Google or Google Scholar. Advanced features of research databases, like saving your searches and creating email alerts when new research is published, will also be covered. This workshop is presented in association with the Thesis Examiner's office as part of their thesis workshop series, but is open to all students at Illinois Tech.
