Two New Library Tutorial Videos

Two new animation videos are now available on the library website. These videos will help students as they begin the library research process.

Picking Your Topic video screen shot

Picking Your Topic IS Research (3:10) describes how picking a topic isn’t set in stone from the get-go. You tweak and refine as you do research. It emphasizes the research process.
From Idea to Library (2:28) tells the story of how an idea goes from a researcher to publication as an article in a journal and how it becomes discoverable in article databases through the library. We hope it helps students better understand the distinctions between an article, a journal, and a database.

You can find these and other tutorials here: http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/tutorials/

Let your librarian know if you have comments or questions about these videos or suggestions for other tutorial topics.
