Painless Psych Literature Reviews
Monday, March 21st from 1:00 to 1:45 or
Tuesday, March 22nd from 1:00 to 1:45
Meets in Galvin Library’s Library Learning Center

Get some research therapy with the Psychology librarian, Jannelle Ruswick. She’ll cover the most common points of confusion and frustration psych students encounter during library research. Topics will include:

    • Outsmarting the databases – “I need information about AIDS, not the word ‘aids’.”
    • Searching two (or more) databases at once – especially important for I/O students.
    • Getting all the PDFs of articles regardless of where they are hiding – some hide really well.
    • Setting up Google Scholar so it works correctly from home – one step changes everything.

This workshop is for all levels of Psych students; even the veterans will benefit. Each day will cover the same information, so you don’t need to come to both. Your time is precious – stop wasting it with bad searches!

Let her know which day you plan on attending here.
