Your time is so precious, why spend it with librarians?

To get the most out of your time here at McGill, I always recommend our MyResearch series of workshops, designed specifically for graduate students.

Here are just five good reasons to attend McGill Library MyResearch workshops this fall:

  1. You will advance your research: MyResearch is not a one-size-fits-all series. We use our subject-specific knowledge to offer five different sets of modules, with specialized content. There will be discussions of issues in scholarly publishing, but also hands-on activities that use your research question to help you get ahead.
  2. You will save time later:
    • Librarians have a lot of tricks up their sleeves when it comes to searching the literature. We can teach you how to build the perfect search and then have the engines do the work for you, keeping you abreast of new publications.
    • EndNote is one tool that we know well, and we can show you how to use it to stay organized and get your citations in order as painlessly as possible.
    • I don’t want to give too much away, but here is a preview of what we will be up to in the physical sciences and engineering with our concept mapping guide and video tutorials.
  3. Recognition on your Co-Curricular Record (CCR): It is a great addition to your CV/resume or portfolio. Sign in to myInvolvement to see your CCR.
  4. It comes with a certificate: If you attend all four modules of MyResearch (not necessarily in the same term) you will receive a certificate signed by both the Trenholme Dean of Libraries and the Dean of Graduate and PostDoctoral Studies.
  5. There is a USB bracelet at the end of MyResearch (who doesn’t like free stuff?).

Modules are happening this month, so register today and spend some time with librarians!
