When is Enough, Enough? Strategies and Approaches for the Saturation Point in Information Searching and Organization
When working with graduate students, one of two major questions that arises is, "How do I know when I have enough information on my topic? What do I do when I follow tangents and have too much?"
In this one-hour online workshop learn from a panel of expert librarians how they approach these issues and how you can employ some of these same strategies to reach a saturation point while right-sizing your information for the task at hand.
Speakers will focus on three topics:
- Affective component of research: time management, database functions to track your search/notifications (Kari Weaver)
- How to identify if you've found core theories/theorists and publications for your topic (Sarah Brown)
- How to identify appropriate vocabulary and how to structure your search to focus (Caitlin Carter)
