Crunch time workshops offer research assistance


By NewsTeam Boulde... - Posted on 29 March 2011

There is nothing quite like the week after Spring Break. The party is officially
over, which means libraries across campus are packed with CU students in
crunch time mode. Luckily, there are resources on campus to help students ease
the stress of the upcoming weeks.

Norlin Library will be hosting multiple workshops to provide students with
research assistance.

Workshop coordinator Stephanie Alexander said, "The overall goal is to give
students quick assistance on common questions that students usually have, so
that they can get the sources they need for their papers and projects really
quickly."

With multiple floors and thousands of books, it can be hard to know where to start.
The staff is hoping students take advantage of this opportunity to get the
assistance they need to make Norlin a resourceful part of their education.

"I think by having these crunch times, we're getting to have that one-on-one
with students that they don't get because it is such a big place," Librarian Barb
Losoff said.

The main focus will be assisting students with finding scholarly articles, finding
sources, citing their work and other questions or concerns students may have.

"The workshops are going to be 20 to 30 minutes, and we will have laptops that
are available for students to use or they can bring their own. So it's definitely
going to be hands on," said coordinator Stephanie Alexander.

The workshops will begin on April 4th, and will be held Monday and Tuesday from 11:00 to 1:00, and Wednesday and Thursday from 2:00 to 4:00 on the first floor of Norlin in room E113.
