Mastering Literature Surveys for CS Graduate StudentsExport this event to calendar

Friday, January 27, 2017 — 1:00 PM EST

Every researcher has nightmares about running across prior work that anticipates--or worse, invalidates--their own contributions. A thorough literature survey is essential to getting a good night’s sleep! A careful survey will also allow you to absorb research techniques and ideas from your peers.

Conducting a research survey is a skill that is rarely taught to graduate students, so most surveys are done by trial and error. To address this gap, Rebecca Hutchinson, Math and Computer Science Librarian, will offer a 2-hour, hands-on session to grad students in the Faculty of Mathematics, covering:

  •         8 easy steps to conducting a systematic literature survey
  •         How to choose survey tools
  •         Search methods used by experts
  •         Library services that can help you

If you want to become an expert searcher, make sure to attend this essential training session. Bring a laptop or tablet!

This session is targeted to graduate students in Computer Science. It is similar to the ‘Library Resources and your Research’ session provided in CS 697.
