Research…you Googled your topic, now what?

Emily and Crew on RiverEver wonder if your heading in the wrong direction? Join us for a two-part workshop series designed to demystify undergrad research and show how you can best use our services to support your scholarly and creative exploration.

Workshop #1 – Research and the Libraries: The Big Picture, 5:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 19, in the new Zurack Family Group Study Room* 

The first in a series of workshops, “The Big Picture” is a broad introduction to the different forms of campus research and the role of the University Libraries in each. This session is designed for students unfamiliar with the Libraries, or those who would like to learn more about what they can do to further support their scholarly and creative interests.

Workshop #2 –Research and the Libraries: Beyond Google and Wikipedia, 5:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday,  Oct. 26, in the Zurack Family Group Study Room* 

This session focuses on the Libraries’ electronic resources and the pursuit of research interests beyond the cursory search through Google or Wikipedia. Although those portals have an important place in modern research, there is an essential foundation of resources within libraries and librarians that can help you refine your online research and interact with the work of other scholars.

*The Zurack Family Group Study Room is located in Newcomb Reading Room in Bartle Library

Everyone is welcome! The first workshop is not a prerequisite for the second workshop – feel free to attend either or both. Questions? Contact Julia Glauberman at

Co-sponsored by the Undergraduate Research Center and the Binghamton University Libraries.
