Upcoming Research/Writing Events


Graduate Workshop, "Science Communication for the Non-Scientist"

Date: March 28, 2017

Location: Room 6107, McKeldin Library

Have your research interests turned toward the interdisciplinary? Are you working on a new project a little outside your normal academic field? Need to get familiar with the writing and methodology in STEM disciplines? Always wanted to meet a STEM librarian? We've got the workshop for you!
On March 28, the Research Commons in McKeldin Library is hosting a graduate student workshop entitled "Science Communication for the Non-Scientist." The workshop will introduce different genres of science communication and their potential value to your research, as well as strategies for using STEM-specific library databases. Last but not least, we'll break down a STEM research article, discussing its structure and other formal aspects, to give you a footing for approaching other articles in the future.
We'll also have tea and coffee to help you power through the afternoon!
