Hello - you've come to the right place if you are looking for research help!
This course guide was designed to help students in POH100 develop the research skills needed to conduct literature searching for your WSI assignment. Please review the sidebar on the left to navigate to different content and topics. There are also video tutorials included to demonstrate keyword searching, how to use Search Everything, specific databases, and exporting citations in a style of your choice.
I also encourage you to use Ask a Librarian Chat, our live chat research help service that connects students, faculty and researchers with real-time research assistance. If you need immediate help as you are working, you can chat with us during the day, evening and on the weekend.
You can also visit our Research Help Desk on the main floor of the Library for in-person assistance, open Monday to Friday, 10am to 5 pm. No appointments required.
You can book a Zoom appointment with me during my librarian office hours, or at an alternate time. Screen sharing in Zoom can be an effective way to learn how to conduct effective searches in specific databases, and we can talk about any issues you may be encountering along the way.
You can also attend our virtual workshop series to learn more about library resources, services and programming, which includes topics such as how to complete a literature review, conducting market research, and using Adobe Illustrator.
