You Can’t Get a Degree from “Google University” - Critically Evaluating Internet Sources: Wednesday, Aug. 26, 9-11:00 am MT

The Internet can be an excellent tool for carrying out research, and for finding reliable information and up-to-the minute news and data. But the information you find online has not always been written by an expert, nor has it always been vetted through a traditional publishing or editing process. This means that information found online can be very difficult to verify and to trust, and so must be looked at with a critical eye. 

This workshop from AU Library will teach you how to evaluate internet resources through a combination of instruction and interactive web-based activities.

Hack the Library - Using Discover to Access Journal Articles, Books, and E-Books: Tuesday, Sept. 8, 9-10:30 am MT  

Discover is one of AU Library’s most popular search tools. You can use it to search many of the Library’s electronic databases as well as our catalogue. But Discover can be challenging to use to search for and access in full text the items that you find there. Join AU Librarians to learn how to use Discover efficiently and effectively.
