Course guide for Dissertation Seminar in the College of Education.

Library Orientation presentations and Tutorial

Below are a few prsentations that provide information about the library and how to use the resourcs.  

Library research involves the step-by-step process used to gather information in order to write a paper, create a presentation, or complete a project.  As you progress from one step to the next, it is commonly necessary to back up, revise, add additional material or even change your topic completely. This will depend on what you discover during your research.  There are many reasons for adjusting your plan. For example, you may find that your topic is too broad and needs to be narrowed, sufficient information resources may not be available, what you learn may not support your thesis.

The tutorial is designed to assist you in the research process and provide information on how to find resources using the John B. Coleman Library website.

 External videos are included for additional information.  Audio is included on the PowerPoint slides indicated.
