Dalhouse Libraries presents The Research Bootcamp

Please note: Registration for this event is now closed
Do you have RAs responsible for doing literature searches, citation management, or other work in support of research?  Do you have TAs responsible for assisting students with finding information for their research papers? The new Research Bootcamp offered by the Dalhousie Libraries may be just the thing to firm up their research skills.  The objective of the Bootcamp is to develop and/or refresh the literature searching and information management abilities of research assistants, teaching assistants, and graduate students.
The Bootcamp starts off with Foundation Parts 1 and 2, which are applicable to all participants. From there, your RAs and TAs can customize their suite of workshops by choosing from a selection of discipline-specific literature searching workshops and information management skills workshops to best address their needs and the work with which they will be involved.
Register your students for the Foundation and U-Pick sessions. Registration will remain open until May 1, 2015.  Visit the Research Bootcamp site [http://dal.ca.libguides.com/ResearchBootcamp] for all the detail, and select the “Register” tab to sign up.
