Librarian works with First Year Projects in Physics students on how to use scientific articles in research

photo of entire classThe students in the First-year Projects in Physics class learned about research methods from UNI librarian Anne-Marie Gruber. After a productive session, they will now be able to answer the following questions:

  • What are the authors' credentials/qualifications?
  • How does the date of the article influence the potential use of this article for a project?
  • What journal was the article published in?
  • How does the peer-review process for scholarly articles work?
  • What are some strategies for reading and analyzing scholarly articles?
 The students celebrated their new knowledge with a group selfie (grelfie?).
