Still thinking about the courses that you may want to take, or recommend that someone else takes, in the fall? (Note: this class will not be offered this summer) Look no further than:
GRAD 5124: Library Research Skills (CRN 96267), 1 credit: http://www.grads.vt.edu/academics/class_schedules/grad_courses/index.html#lib
The objective of this course is to assist students in using relevant information resources effectively and building advanced research skills. Research tools like EndNote and Zotero will also be discussed; students will emerge from this class with a personal database of literature applicable to any research project that a student selects. While the course was developed for graduate students, the current Graduate Catalog indicates that seniors are also eligible to take graduate level courses, and I believe that seniors anticipating graduate level work would benefit greatly from this course.
I will be the co-instructor in this course, and the primary instructor for students from HNFE who register for the course. Students interested in taking this course should make sure that they register for CRN 96267 (“Meier” will be listed as the instructor; we will break out students into disciplines after registration).
Questions? As always, let me know! I look forward to teaching many HNFE students in this course in the fall!
