QEP equals Gather Analyze Present

Cultural Credit Workshops 4/19 and 4/21

Research After Stetson: a workshop for graduating seniors*

You may have heard the phrase “Information wants to be free” but you know it’s not true because you’ve encountered a journal article paywall. As a member of the Stetson community, you have access to databases, journals, articles, books, ebooks, streaming video, and more, all paid for by Stetson. What are your options when you leave Stetson? Learn about accessing journal articles, databases and other library resources available after you graduate. Cultural Credit is available for this QEP = G.A.P. workshop.

Tuesday, April 19, 1 pm to 2 pm
Thursday, April 21, 4 pm to 5 pm

For more information see the Library Workshops page.  Registration is appreciated, but not required.

*This workshop is open to all students.

QEP equals Gather Analyze Present

QEP workshop: Are all sources created equal?

Are some information sources better than others? Why do some assignments ask you to only use peer-reviewed articles or empirical research articles? Why are some sources considered inappropriate for a research paper? In this hands-on workshop, you will learn about different sources of information, how they are created, and the ways they may be used in a research project.

Tuesday, March 29, 2022, 1:00pm – 2:00pm, East Room (Library 1st floor)
Thursday, March 31, 2022, 4:00pm – 5:00pm, East Room (Library 1st floor)

Cultural Credit is available for this QEP = GAP workshop.
