The Maloney Library’s Research Assistant (RA) Bootcamp will be held on Wednesday, May 29 from 9am – 12pm in room 3-09. We will introduce students to what is expected of an RA, give them an overview of library resources, and show them how to make efficient use of those resources to assist faculty with their research.
RAs will also have the opportunity to attend a meet-and-greet with the library liaison assigned to the RA’s faculty member. This will allow each RA to make a connection with the librarian most knowledgeable about his or her faculty member’s general area of research. Interested in attending? Contact Michelle Penn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of the information discussed at RA Bootcamp can be found in the library’s RA Survival Guide, including information on what RAs should do when they receive assignments, how to develop a research plan, and how to know when your research is complete. To access the RA Survival Guide, click here.
