Library Research Methods: Pathways to Success

Laura Scudder Conference Room, Roosevelt Hall 121

 

This workshop focuses on supporting Chapman graduate students who are conducting research and producing research papers, theses and dissertations.

 

Being aware of the resources available to you at your library will prepare you to manage your time efficiently, to do your research more effectively, and to write your paper more successfully. This workshop highlights practical strategies to locate sources for literature review and provides you some tips in using citations, creating alerts to stay updated on publications, customizing Google Scholar options, and more.

Leatherby Libraries, Chapman University

Shahrzad Khosrowpour, Coordinator of Cataloging & Gifts received her Bachelor’s degree in food engineering from Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey), and her master of library science degree from Texas Woman’s University (Denton, Texas).  She has been with Chapman University and the Leatherby Libraries since August 2014 as the coordinator of cataloging and gifts. In this position, she coordinates the cataloging department and its operations and workflows as part of the collection management division. She is also the subject liaison for the Department of World Languages & Cultures, Peace Studies, and International Studies.

 

Her academic interest for the last 16 years in the library profession has been focused on academic libraries and information management and has successful presentations on this topic. She considers library science a multidisciplinary field that can be applied to different research areas. She has taken advantage of this in her library career and has shown research interests in science, engineering, business, world languages, and cultures, as well as library science. Shahrzad is also dedicated to bringing awareness of Middle East culture and literature mostly centered on Iran and Turkey and to this end she is contributing book reviews to the Middle East Librarians Association which is indexed in JSTOR.
