In addition to individual and group research consultations to help you with your online research, we are happy to announce library workshops taking place this month:

Finding Reliable Evidence Online

When: March 8th from 4-5:30 p.m.

Where: Starr Auditorium

Why: Of course you know how to search online for data. But there are more efficient and less efficient ways to identify appropriate evidence, and there are more and less reliable sources. This session will improve your ability to structure an efficient search for appropriate and reliable evidence to inform policy analysis. Linda Rosen and Keely Wilczek from HKS Library & Knowledge Services will offer research guidance and an tour of top online resources.
