Citation Indexes Workshop
This workshop will show you how to locate related research by tracking what other sources scholars have cited when writing their papers or books. Using these citation indexes you will be able to enter into the scholarly conversation that continues after a scholarly article or monograph is published. You'll also learn about the problems in using a citation index. This class is not about how to write your own bibliography in APA or MLA or Turabian style. For tools to help you with that aspect of your research attend one of our Zotero workshops. Designed for Honors College students in HON 3100, University Scholar students in HON 3101, and open to others.
Intellectual Property, Copyright, and Open Access
Do you know your rights as an author? Does open access publishing improve the visibility of your research? How do you copyright your honors thesis? Learn the answers to these questions and discuss the pros and cons of author's rights as you prepare to write your honors thesis. Designed for Honors College students in HON 3101 and open to others.
The Honors students taking 3100 and 3101 need to attend - for credit - several of the workshops offered by the Baylor Libraries. This page lists what is needed for which class.
Learn the basics of finding information using the resources that the Libraries provide. Topics include searching the Libraries' online catalog, choosing a database from the 700+ that Baylor provides, learning research strategies for the databases, finding out how to request materials that the Libraries do not own, getting assistance from a subject librarian, taking advantage of Google Scholar, and searching Google efficiently.
