Do your research has become a cliche but where do you start when you want to go beyond Google? How can you read scholarly articles when you don’t have access to an academic library? Where can you find expert opinions about both sides of an issue?

In this webinar, you will learn about different starting points so that you can “do your research” and help others do the same. We’ll also cover starting points for students in search of a topic and the first steps of their research journeys.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
• Help adults and students find starting points for health, current events, and government information research
• Use and recommend topic finders
• Show students free resources for beginning the research process
