The Research Challenge Guide is a step-by-step guide to the fundamentals of college-level research. The guide is a self-directed series of modules that takes a novice researcher through the steps involved in the research process. Worksheets are provided for printing. Use the Help tab for information on evaluating, citing, and annotating your sources.
The videos above are just a few of the research how-to videos found in ProQuest Research Companion - a series of 10 learning modules covering the entire research writing process from identifying a topic, finding credible sources, and avoiding plagiarism.
Use ProQuest Research Companion to supplement and/or reinforce information literacy skills conveyed by the Library's Information Literacy Program tutorials and during librarian-led classroom instruction sessions.
Direct students to the three ProQuest Research Companion learning modules: Find Information, Evaluate Information and Use Information, for self-paced learning of vital information literacy concepts. The learning modules allow students to cover all topics in a sequence, target those areas that they are unfamiliar with, or review areas in need of improvement. The embedded assessment provides evidence of their understanding of the basic concepts and proof of completion.
