Professional Development Series: Success for Graduate Students and Postdocs

As part of The Graduate School’s ongoing “Professional Development Series: Success for Graduate Students and Postdocs,” we are offering a presentation titled “Research Tips and Techniques for your Literature Review.” Many of you may have attended our Literature Review presentation last quarter (if not, power point slides are available on the Graduate School website under Professional Development http://www.grad.washington.edu/profdev/events.shtml), “Research Tips and Techniques for your Literature Review” is a follow-up to that presentation.

“Research Tips and Techniques for your Literature Review” is designed to save you time and enhance the sophistication of your research by introducing you, or reintroducing you, to databases and research techniques. This particular presentation is geared towards graduate students engaged in social science research or interdisciplinary research that draws on social science methodologies and theoretical approaches. However, it is open to all graduate students at any level.

Our presentation leaders will be Political Science and Public Affairs Librarian, Emily Keller, and Geography Librarian, Amanda Hornby

Date:  Friday January 14
Time: 12:00-1:00
Location: Research Commons (ground floor of the Allen Library)
