Auburn University Libraries will be offering its spring edition of the Savvy Researcher Boot Camp on Saturday, February 6, from 9 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. The daylong event is designed for graduate students who want to take their research skills to a higher level. Whether students are interested in learning how to find scholarly sources, write a literature review, manage citations, or design a poster presentation, the Savvy Researcher workshops will help them become better, and more effective, researchers.
