Michigan Tech Google Scholar Workshop Oct. 12

Join us and learn to use Google Scholar like a pro today (Oct. 12) at 4 p.m. in the Library, Room 244.

Google Scholar is a powerful search engine and often the first stop for students and researchers just diving into a topic. However, weeding through the junk and paywalls to find detailed, relevant information can be a challenge. Attendees at this workshop will learn advanced tools and strategies that will make your Google Scholar searches more targeted and effective!

Register to attend.
