Summer Research Training Videos & Handbook_2023

Short video overviews and full handbook of common research topics

Videos for RAs Introduction

The 4 videos in the tabbed box below are targeted towards research assistants, but can be used by any student. These videos discuss:

  • Where to start and how to parse a research request;
  • Presenting your work when you have finished researching;
  • Getting started on a literature review; and
  • Using free tools to find quotes, page numbers, and cached webpages.

Below each video, we've included the slides used in that video. You can also check out our Summer Research Handbook, which is full of useful tips and research suggestions applicable to a wide variety of research assistant questions, or any of our research guides.

Have a question from one of the videos, a suggestion for additional videos, or any other question? Please contact us by email; via Zoom during our open hours; or request to meet with a librarian using the link from our home page.
