for our students.

               Spring 2009 Library Workshops
South Gate and ELAC campus libraries will continue to offer library workshops during the 2009 spring semester.
The workshops help students achieve information competency, prepare for transfer, and become lifelong learners.
Please encourage your students to attend. Descriptions of our six workshops are listed below. Visit the respective
library websites for more detailed information:

ELAC Library:

Get Started with Research: This workshop is geared toward students who are writing speeches, research papers,
and argumentative essays for courses like English 101, 102, and 103. Students learn how to select a topic, narrow
a topic, write a preliminary research question, and select keywords to use in searching library databases. The
workshop also introduces students to library sources that provide background information on their topics.

Online Library Catalogs: Students learn how to search for library books and other materials in the ELAC
Library Catalog and in the CSU-LA Library Catalog. The workshop helps students become independent
researchers capable of navigating online catalogs in any library.

Journals, Magazines, and Newspaper Articles: Students learn the major differences between scholarly journals
and popular magazines and the function of scholarly journals in academia. Students also learn how to use
keywords to find and access scholarly journal, magazine, and newspaper articles in the ProQuest Database.

Credible Sources on the Web: Students learn how to evaluate Websites for credibility and how to find credible
Websites using subject directories and Google’s advanced search features.
