Course leader: Dr Anne Alexander

From the exploration of digital collections of primary sources, to researching the existing scholarly literature, to the dissemination of published work, contemporary academic practice relies on search engines, often without critical reflection on how use of these technologies may shape the process and outcome of our scholarship. This workshop will present strategies for critical thinking about search and research.
