What is Research Connections all about?

The Research Connection pilot initiative is all about connecting students to resources in the new Learning Commons in order to make them more effective as researchers and writers.  

The program is designed to connect students who may not have much academic research experience with peers who do.  The Research Assistants are upper-division undergraduate students in the Libraries’ Research and Active Learning course who are available to help their peers identify, use, and evaluate information sources. 

Research Assistants also:

  • Help students connect with relevant campus resources such as librarians and the Writing Center.
  • Act as a sounding board for developing research paper ideas.
  • Help review proper citations.

If you are a student or instructor and would like to know more about participating in this program, please use the form to the right to send us your contact information and we will get in touch with you.
