Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Adult Programs

Are you looking to improve your research skills?  Join us for this four part series designed to help you feel more comfortable finding answers to your questions.

  • Where Do I Start (My Research)?
    • Monday, January 29 at 6pm
    • How do you decide where to look? Learn when and why you might use Google, and when you might want to use an online library resource, a book, a journal, or even Wikipedia, to find your answer.
  • How Can I Do A Better Search?
    • Monday, February 26 at 6pm
    • No one wants to look through 2,000,000 websites. Learn tips and tricks to get any search tool to bring back fewer, more targeted results.
  • Did I Choose the Best Source?
    • Monday, March 25 at 6pm
    • You’ve heard about ‘fake news.’ Learn the importance of reading from a variety of sources, how to determine the credibility of these tools, and the significance of citing your sources.
  • Did I Find Out What I Wanted to Know?
    • Monday, April 29 at 6pm
    • Put it all together, decide if you answered your original question, and learn alternatives you might not have considered.

 

These sessions are free and open to the public.  Attend one or all sessions.

Space is limited so pre-registration is encouraged. For more information contact Stephanie Race at srace@sjcfl.us or 904-827-6950.
