About Razor's Research Bytes

Razor's Research Bytes is a self-paced library orientation that consists of a series of "bite-size" online modules that introduce general research concepts and illustrate how to efficiently use library resources. 

Specifically, these "bytes" provide an introduction to the NSU Libraries, services provided by librarians, and tips for finding, evaluating, and citing articles, books, and other sources of information. 

Upon successful completion of the "What did you learn?" activity at the end of Razor's Research Bytes, students will earn a certificate that can be printed for their records.
