Often when we’re not sure what to do when looking for information, we use tried and true methods and tools that usually work! After all, we help students every day and encourage them to build their skills in these areas.
But what happens when those methods don’t get us what we need? Perhaps we need a new methodology to approaching a particularly complex problem. Maybe we should re-frame the question into a research problem? If you think so…
Did you ever think that you could take some of your own advice and…ASK A LIBRARIAN at our own UIC Library! Librarians are masters at finding information, vetting the sources of information, and generally providing incisive, helpful advice about how to find what we need.
Our UIC librarians are not only helpful to our students but to us! Don’t forget – we received some great updates about what they can do for our students in their presentation “Connecting Students with Library Research Services” from the Fall 2014 Advising Summit. But here’s a secret – they can also help us!
