Research Overview

Has it been awhile since you've had to develop a research question and a search strategy? Not sure how to navigate UK Libraries' resources?

Consider enrolling in Online Information Literacy, a self-paced course in UK's Canvas which was co-developed by your librarian. The course takes around 40 minutes to complete.

We have also developed Open Academic Research, a self-guided course open to anyone and particularly aimed at budding researches and graduate students. There are a wide variety of self-paced modules to explore in any order, covering topics such as:  

  • Discovering your field’s keywords, scholars, and journals  

  • Specialized databases and reference sources in your field  

  • Selecting journals to consider for submission 

  • Incorporating digital media and technology tools into your research 

  • Finding and using primary sources  

Consider enrolling for free in one or both courses to review these research skills!
