Research Crash Course

This guide contains the research crash course modules that the library created.

Research Crash Course Overview

The Research Crash Course may be used in two ways.

  1. Faculty may assign these short units to their students to supplement their research related instruction. 
  2. Students may view them at their own pace to improve their own research habits.
