Fellow graduate students and librarians will share strategies to enhance graduate research. Participants will learn how to locate new sources and identify places to find sources to expand bibliographies, discover strategies for managing sources, identify potential gaps in current research, and exchange ideas with other graduate students who are also in a similar phase in their research process.

The schedule and presentations will be customized based on the applications received and the needs identified. Potential topics could include, but are not limited to, advanced strategies for conducting literature reviews, citation and research organization strategies, locating the latest research on a topic, and refining research questions.

Space is limited to 30 registrants and application is required. There is no cost to participate. Acceptance to attend will be determined by the description of the applicant’s research project, their current stage of research (those in the research or planning phase of their dissertation or thesis), and identified needs.

The application can be found online at http://bit.ly/nextlevelresearch. For questions or more information, contact Emily Hart at ekhart@syr.edu.
