Nearly 30% of undergraduates place out of Communication A courses at UW-Madison. These courses emphasize college writing, and include a two-part information literacy module that provides a foundation for conducting college-level research. The module, an online tutorial followed by one class session with a librarian, emphasizes critical thinking when selecting sources for a research need, an introduction to scholarly communication, as well as skills and strategies for searching effectively and efficiently. If you tested out of Comm A, then don’t miss out on this research skills module that many of your peers have already received!
Register now for the two-part workshop (an online tutorial you complete on your own, followed by an in-person session at College Library). You’ll receive a solid foundation in college-level research and an introduction to the variety of information sources you’ll encounter in college and beyond, including the scholarly articles that many of your professors require for assignments.
