Research Party

Thursday, November 18 at 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM in 1st Floor Huie Library Computer Classroom

We know getting started on a research project is hard. There are so many topics you could write about. Your professors might be asking for 10 or more pages from you. There are a bajillion articles, books, and videos available to you as a HSU student. How do you even begin to tackle all of this?

We have an idea for you: research party! On Thursday, November 18 from 11am to 1:30pm, librarians will be in the library computer classroom—with free snacks!—to help you get started. We will help you create and refine topics. We’ll show you how to use our databases to quickly find the best information. We can even talk about how to get resources from other libraries, if you need them.

Can’t make it? Get help from a librarian in-person, over the phone, or through chat at a time that fits your schedule.
