Searching for publications for a literature review is a frustrating experience for many graduate students. If you dread finding material for your lit review, join us for this workshop where you’ll learn about search strategies, how to find and search subject databases, and how to keep up with literature in your field. You’ll also be introduced to citation chains and how they can streamline your search for relevant publications.
