Literature Review Process and SU Libraries Tools: iSchool REU Program (Sum 2023)


Congratulations on your acceptance into the iSchool's REU Summer 2023 program!  

This guide will assist with the literature review portion of your research that you will be conducting this summer.

On the afternoon of June 12, I will conduct a workshop for the class on developing literature searches and writing the literature review. The workshop will also include the opportunity for you to put these concepts into practice with interactive discussion and activities. Feel free to use this guide before and after the workshop, and go to the Contacts at SU Libraries on how to reach me and/or SU Libraries reference service.
