The Virtual Library course: Registration now open!

The move from paper to electronic information sources has dramatically changed the landscape of academic research, publishing, and scholarly communication. Fast-paced technological innovations shape our research practices as well as the ways we publish and share our work with others inside and outside our fields.

Librarian instructors will guide students through electronic research resources available at the University of Toronto – and beyond – and provide students with the necessary skills to use them effectively to enhance their research in education. The course is offered via online modules:

1.Library search basics
2.Advanced search techniques*
3.Tracking citations and impact factors
4.Open Access publishing and scholarly communication
5.Citation management (RefWorks, Zotero, etc.)
6.Data and statistics in education research
7.Research beyond the University of Toronto

* Advanced search techniques is the only required module. Students must complete a minimum of three modules to successfully complete the Virtual Library course.

Note: This course is only open to graduate students and faculty pursuing studies / research in the field of education. There are only 20 spaces available — register now!
