Starting a Literature Review

A common project at the start of a research project is conducting a literature review. It's important to know what scholars have done on your research previously, and how those scholars are talking to one another. This workshop will help undergraduate students understand what a literature review, what the writing process consists of, and other best practices to get started.

Kat Phillips, who will be leading the presentation, is the Nursing & Allied Health Librarian at Penn State. She works closely with the College of Nursing, Health Policy & Administration Department, Consortium to Combat Substance Abuse (CCSA). Her research focuses on distance education and embedded librarianship, grey literature use within allied health, and the IF I APPLY tool of resource & bias assessment. She and her husband have two energetic kids, Abby and Rhys, who have all the questions at the moment, two cats, a big, doofy dog, and a handful of fish.

Registration is required.
