The UHP Research Workshop

23 Oct

GW’s librarians are a kind and gentle folk, very different from their more devilish Pawnean cousins.

Tired of getting just “good” grades on your research papers?

Can’t find the perfect source for your work?

Swamped in databases and journals?

Introducing the UHP Research Workshop! Just like your major, you probably already know how to research. But you’re at GW to learn to be a pro. So ESIA Senior and UHP Staffer Preston Whitt has been trained by the GW Research Librarians to help answer such important research questions as:

• What magickry gets me the best results from all these databases?

• How do I cite my work in APA/Chicago/Special-Ornery-Professor-

• Oh primary sources, where art thou?

• I need the big guns. How do I find a librarian to aid my research?

Whether you need to fine-tune your selection of Chinese journals to accurately defend your thesis, or if you don’t even know how to write a thesis statement; whether you need help choosing between a million sources or just finding the first one; whether you need someone to check your 2010 APA-style citations or don’t even know where to put your
references, the Research Workshop can help.

From 5:00 to 6:30 on Tuesdays in the Foggy Townhouse , the UHP can assist you with your research process. Preston will post reminders and any changes on Facebook (so ‘like’ us!). If you have a BIG research project, feel free to email beforehand. That way Preston knows to bring his Special Research Glasses to help you get the most from the session.

See you there!
