An introduction to doing research in the library. Topics include when to use Google/Wikipedia vs. library resources, refining a research question, brainstorming for search terms, and key term searching.

My lecture/activity notes (and additional, hidden slides with lesson plan material) are available in the downloaded file, but aren't visible in the Slideshare viewer.
