Workshop I:  Intro to Library Resources

  • locate and access SCC Library services
  • generate effective search terms for a given information need
  • understand how a research database differs from a Web search engine
  • use OneSearch to locate books, ebooks, and articles in research databases

Workshop II:  Intro to Research

  • locate and access SCC Library services
  • generate effective search terms for a given information need
  • locate articles from scholarly journals using OneSearch and the Library’s research databases
  • identify differences in the creation, use, and value of scholarly and academic sources, web resources, and other types of sources

Getting Credit

Some instructors offer extra credit for attending one or both of the sessions. Here is how you get proof of attendance:

  1. At the end of the session, you will be given a worksheet.
  2. You will complete the worksheet. You can do this immediately after the session or you can do it later; you will need to be online to do the worksheet, but you do not have to do it inside the library.
  3. When you are done, bring the worksheet to the Research Help desk on the 2nd floor of the LRC.
  4. A librarian will check your work. If you complete the worksheet satisfactorily, you will receive a paper proof of completion that you can give to your instructor.

We recommend that you keep a copy of this paper slip, in case a second professor also requires proof of completion. The Library does not retain records of attendance at these sessions.
