New E-Handouts Support Remote Learning and Teach New Research Methods and Skills

Written by Social Science and Social Work Research Support Librarian Sophie Leveque.

Social Science and Social Work Research Support Librarian Sophie Leveque uploaded several e-handouts to Academic Commons for use by the Columbia University community and beyond. The learning materials were originally created to accompany four popular virtual workshops hosted by the Libraries, Let’s Use CLIO, Database Demo, Reading Difficult Texts, and Literature Reviews: How To and Why, and are now published and accessible in Academic Commons.

Leveque was inspired to create the resources to support remote learning and enable users to learn new research methods, skills, and software in a virtual environment. The handouts are intended to supplement workshops and also serve as stand-alone reminders on the topics covered for experienced library users.
