    Conducting literature reviews, especially at an advanced level, can often be a source of academic anxiety. In this workshop, we’ll examine several strategies to help you develop confidence in your literature review searching. The workshop will discuss psychological strategies for approaching literature reviews, such as adopting a process-oriented “growth” mindset toward research, as well as several practical search techniques that will help you feel confident both getting started with your research and knowing when your literature review is complete. Though this workshop is intended for graduate students, all are welcome.


    Coffee and pastries will be provided  to all workshop attendees.
