The Library is asking University of Waterloo graduate students and faculty members to participate in a national survey on journal usage to inform collection development and negotiations. The journal usage survey, coordinated by the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) is accessed by email.
Valentine’s Day is approaching and once again the Library is playing matchmaker! ‘Blind date with a book’ is happening February 13-17 at Dana Porter, Davis Centre, Musagetes and St. Jerome’s libraries.
What is a blind date with a book? Books wrapped in paper come with a ‘personal ad’ containing some clues about what’s inside. Without knowing what the book looks like, the title or the author, signing out a book is like going on a blind date. You never know what you might get…it could be your favourite read of the year!
Build a better research essay by using the Library’s resources and databases to explore a topic, develop a research question, write a thesis, and build an argument. Research-based essay planning and development will help you create a more complex argument and essay structure.
