COMP 2000 Advanced College Writing

Welcome to the COMP 2000 LibGuide

Before class gets started, please do the following:

1) Attendance Sign in: (online form)
(If the librarian passed around a paper sign-in sheet, there is no need to use the online form.)

2) Bookmark the COMP 2000 course library guide:
(You may need to refer back to it to complete homework assignments.)

Learning Outcomes:

Welcome!  This course guide highlights library resources and research strategies to help with class assignments.

After reviewing this guide, you will better understand:

  • how to use Ask A Librarian and Library Guides for help
  • how to refine your research topic/question
  • how to develop effective search strategies
  • how to perform an advanced search in databases to find articles

You'll see us again!

There is too much information about the library to cover in just this one session, so librarians will also visit the following undergraduate courses to focus on the specific concepts below:

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

  • COMP 1500 - how to identify and evaluate information sources

  • 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

Library Guides

Library Guides (like this one) are designed to help you use the library. 

They provide:

  • how-to instructions
  • video tutorials
  • resource recommendations
  • workshop/event notifications

On each page of this COMP 2000 guide, there is a section called "Related Library Guides" that lists other in-depth guides about specific topics.
