GOLD (Ruby Certificate) Workshops in Milne — Week of 3/8

Milne Librarians are offering some excellent GOLD Workshops (Ruby Certificate) during the second week of March. First up is Starting Your Research Project: Using MultiSearch and Other Time Saving Strategies, with co-instructors Michelle Costello and Justina Elmore, on Monday (3/8) 2-3 p.m. in Milne 109. The workshop is intended to help students begin research for class assignments and to introduce them to some of Milne’s important resources and services, including a variety of useful catalogs and databases.

On Tuesday (3/9), from 2-3 p.m. in Milne 208, students interested in learning how to navigate the complex landscape of legal research can attend Tom Ottaviano’s Researching Law workshop. Law and legislation can potentially have a profound impact on much of what we study, yet finding this information is often confusing and difficult. Workshop attendees will learn where and how to find discussion about federal and state codes, information about court cases, and reviews of legislation.

Did you know there were laws governing how you can use the information you find on the internet? Join Sue Ann Brainard on Wednesday (3/10) for her workshop on Ethics and Laws of Information Use to learn how students are constantly making ethical decisions and taking legal risks when using the internet. In this workshop, which will be held from 2-3 p.m. in Milne 109, these issues will be explored using scenarios.
