Introductory research seminar for students currently pursuing an Honors research project. An introduction to research methods used in different disciplines and to scholarly collaboration and communication. This course focuses on formulating a research question, identifying and utilizing sources, constructing and critiquing scholarly arguments, and creating an effective final written and oral product. As students learn about scholarly research, they simultaneously identify and refine their own research topic, engage in scholarly conversations on their work, apply discipline-specific methodologies to their work, and create their own final research product and bibliography.
The Cañada College Library, on the third floor of Building 9, offers computers, textbooks, technology, research help, printing, and group study rooms.
Library computers do not require you to log in and do not have a time limit so you can come and stay all day. Chromebooks, hotspots and calculators can be checked out from the circulation desk after you complete a technology loan agreement.
Search for textbooks available at the library. If you do not see your textbook, fill out the Textbook request form for students.
