Description/Abstract

To facilitate student success in the UCF Undergraduate Research program, the UCF Libraries provides layered support for student participants. Summer Research Academy students are introduced to library services, databases, and a librarian with subject expertise. They complete online modules to learn how to recognize a research study, evaluate web sites, and use Google Scholar. In the fall semester, workshops on the literature review and citation management build additional skills. Students are encouraged to take advantage of research consultations with subject librarians, customized online research guides, and the Ask a Librarian service. This layered approach supports information seeking and critical thinking skills.
