  • COMP 2000 - how to refine your research question/topic and modify your searches

  • UNIV 1000 - virtual library tour and introduction to library/research terms

  • BIOL 1500 - how to find and cite articles for your lab report

  • BIOL 1510 - how scientific publication works and finding articles for your lab report
