Library Training Modules

Library instruction series to improve evidence-based practice and research skills among students, faculty and staff of ATSU

Module Description

I. Literature reviews range from Narrative to Systematic. The term "Literature Review" is an umbrella term which covers this range. This training module will help you learn to determine which type of review best fits your clinical or research question.

II. Citation managers - also called reference managers or bibliographic management software - are programs that store and format scholarly references and citations. They are useful for keeping track of important articles or other works, for formatting citations and building bibliographies, using a wide variety of citation styles including APA and AMA, and for sharing research between a group of users. This module will review the various types of citation managers and provide a demonstration of how to use Zotero.

III. Publishing your research can be exhilarating and daunting. This module will review:

  • Questions to consider when analyzing journals
  • How to identify predatory journals
  • How to evaluate a journal for submission
  • Open Access resources

No prior research experience is required. It is recommended that participants complete modules in the order listed to build their skills incrementally. 

This module is currently under construction. A self-paced asynchronous tutorial module is coming soon!

In the meantime, please review these libguides on the above topics:
