Research Companion: Info Lit Resource Updates
Recent updates to our award-winning information literacy resource include a new module focused on future improvements and improved accessibiilty.

"How Can I Do Better Next Time?" speaks to the most-requested topic amongst PQRC customers, "Reflection." The six videos in this module were designed to help students reflect on their research and identify what went well and also areas for improvement. Students are encouraged to think not just about their final product but the entire research process.

You'll find accessibility improvements not just in the video player, which is redesigned to allow for easier keyboard control, but within the videos themselves including full transcripts and closed captioning.

For more details on these recent changes to Research Companion, view the up-to-date LibGuide.
