Get better results for the topics you search in the library databases! If you ever get too many or too few results or results that don’t seem on-topic, then this is a great webinar for you! Learn how to become a more effective researcher by signing up for our “Searching Databases” webinar.

If the timing of this webinar doesn’t work out for you, see our Library Guides. We have guides and tutorials that are available 24/7 and can help you with everything from finding an article for a discussion post, to helping you prepare for your dissertation.

RefWorks is a research management tool that helps you collect, organize, and store citations from library databases and other resources. If you haven’t been using this handy tool to take control and organize your research process, sign up for a RefWorks webinar today!

The webinar will cover the basics of creating an account, sending articles to RefWorks, organizing folders, and creating APA formatted bibliographies. Time will be provided to answer any ReWorks questions you may still have.

If this webinar time doesn’t work out for you, our RefWorks information page includes helpful guides, video tutorials and a recording of an earlier webinar to help you get started.

If you have any questions about these webinars, or other library resources, please contact the library.
