8:45am Welcome

Literature Resources and Tools for Research
Collections & Humanities Librarian, Richard Bleiler, will walk participants through a variety of UConn Library resources that support literature-focused research. The session will highlight resources available for locating primary texts and secondary (critical) materials, starting with the databases and concluding the LibGuide(s).

Information Literacy Tools: An Introduction: This session, led by UConn Health Science Library’s Associate Systems and Technology Administrator Jason Nicosia, will provide an overview of the many guides, tutorials, modules, and other learning objects the UConn Library offers. These objects have been developed to support the information literacy and critical thinking skills of your students. A select group of these tools will be demonstrated live during the session. Helpful tips for integrating these valuable resources into your instructional sessions will also be shared.

Intro to STEM Resources and Databases at UConn Library: In this workshop, STEM Librarian Renee Walsh will focus on literacies needed for the successful searching of science topical databases. For example, what is the difference between searching for information in Google versus a database with a controlled vocabulary? Finally, I will introduce the most important topical databases at UConn Library for research in science, engineering, and mathematics disciplines.

Intro to History Resources
In this workshop, history liaison David Avery will familiarize participants with the range of resources available from UConn Library to support historical research and inquiry.
