SAGE Research Methods - 05/01/2017

SAGE Research Methods supports research at all levels by providing material to guide users through every step of the research process. Nearly everyone at a university is involved in research, from students learning how to conduct research to faculty conducting research for publication to librarians delivering research skills training and doing research on the efficacy of library services. SAGE Research Methods has the answer for each of these user groups, from a quick dictionary definition, a case study example from a researcher in the field, a downloadable teaching dataset, a full-text title from the Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences series, or a video tutorial showing research in action.

Use SAGE Research Methods to:

-Look for information on how to design and conduct a research project.
-Learn new research methods.
-Read case studies from researchers focused on how they chose and applied their research methods, plus the obstacles and challenges they faced.
-Find downloadable datasets to practice statistical and analytical methods hands-on.
-Bring methods to life through the largest streaming video collection dedicated to methods on the market.

ProQuest Research Companion  - 05/02/2017 

ProQuest Research Companion is ProQuest’s flagship information literacy product. It was built to help students do more effective scholarly research and to support educators as they teach the core information literacy principles of finding, evaluating, and using information.

More than 80 short videos are organized into nine Learning Modules that answer questions like "How do I choose a topic?" "Where do I find information?" and "How do I evaluate sources?" Different kinds of "pre" and "post" assessment questions make the viewing experience more interactive, while allowing educators to measure students’ learning and identify gaps in their understanding.
