Whether you are writing your dissertation or publishing an article, the literature review section can be daunting. Additionally, after you’ve found the information, keeping track of it can become a full time job. In this session, Mines Librarians – Brianna Buljung and Chris Thiry, will provide you with strategies for conducting effective literature reviews and tips for keeping your research organized. We will help you to consider the types of information needed, where to find it, and explore the types of tools used to organize research. You will also have the opportunity to practice using these tools and strategies, so please bring a laptop or personal device.
