Welcome to Research Boot Camp 2024!

The Angus L. Macdonald library presents an in-depth workshop series designed with this summer's research assistants in mind. In this program, librarians will take you through the research process to ensure that you are well-prepared to tackle essential research skills such as: literature reviews, source evaluation, citation managment, knowledge synthesis projects and much, much more! 

This year's sessions will run from May 6-8 through live online presentations, via Blackboard Collaborate. 

The Boot Camp sessions are free of charge and registration is open to all StFX students, staff and faculty, with a particular focus on the information management needs of research assistants. Participants can choose individual sessions to attend based on your research needs and areas of interest, and register via the StFX Library Events Page
