Many faculty and GTAs request library assistance instructing their students on research strategies and subject related sources. Georgia State University Library provides weekly workshops, video tutorials, research guides and in-class instruction to meet the needs of both students and faculty.
If your students already have basic skills in library research, please schedule an in-person instruction session by contacting your subject librarian. If your students don’t have basic library skills, please refer them to the workshops and tutorials available below. Prior to scheduling a session please read our instruction process below:
Georgia State University Library hosts a series of workshops and online tutorials that provide your students with research success skills that not only help them earn good grades, but can also prepare them for their careers beyond GSU.
Workshops in our “Research Essentials” series may be taken in any order or as their own separate learning sessions. These sessions cover plagiarism, citations, how to evaluate sources, developing a research question and items in our collection. Sessions take place every week, both in the library and online.
If students can’t make it to a workshop, video tutorials are available 24 hours a day, providing the basics of searching the catalog, using the library web site, locating a book and citing sources appropriately.
In addition, library personnel are available for research support at our User Services desk on Library North 1, by email, phone or live chat.
