COLLEGE & DEPARTMENTAL RESOURCES
Many colleges and departments offer research advice and opportunities specific to certain majors or disciplines:
For Apprentices: URAP faculty want to see applicants with strong library and internet searching skills. Move your skills up a notch by taking an online library course and becoming familiar with relevant library collections.
For independent researchers: Whatever your field of research, you will need to know how those in your field formulate questions, what tools and methods they use in gathering and analyzing texts and data, and where they publish their results. The library online resources can get you started, and take you well beyond the basics.
