Working with Sources, Part 1: Finding and Evaluating Sources
Conducting research for a paper or project can be overwhelming! If you need to work with outside sources for a project or paper, this workshop can help you get started. The first part of successfully using outside sources is finding ones that work well for you! In this workshop, we will cover:  
·        Figuring out what sources to look for
·        Understanding how and where to find quality sources
·        Evaluating the sources you have found
·        Keeping track of where you are getting sources
