Want High Quality Student Papers? Partner with the Library to Improve Student Research Skills.
Our students have a wide array of resources available through the Sheridan Libraries to support their research. But students often don’t know where . . . to start. To help take away some of the mystery, the library offers a self-paced, research-skills module designed to be integrated into any existing course. The module was integrated into an EP course with noticeable improvement in the quality of research, and literature citing, conducted by the students.
