Fisher Fine Arts Library Services

Want your students to strengthen their research skills? I can develop and lead interactive sessions to help your students become confident in search strategies, research management, and citation practices. Examples of sessions include

  • using advanced search in disciplinary databases and evaluating sources
  • finding and using primary sources, government material, and grey literature
  • using tools to organize research and improve citations 

I can also create class-specific research guides that can be embedded in your Canvas course and help with course reserves. Get in touch!
