Improving Student Research: Introduction

Improving Student Research

Welcome to the Hoover Library guide to improving student research! The purpose of this website is to connect McDaniel College faculty with suggestions for how to improve student research based on data from recent qualitative and quantitative studies documenting how today's undergraduates actually conceptualize and approach research tasks. Some of the content on this site borrows extensively from one created by librarians at Temple University. We are extremely grateful to them for letting us reuse their materials! If you have any questions, please contact your liaison librarian.

Additional instruction resources are available to faculty from the Hoover Library's Instruction Resources page.
