About the Building Connections to Scholarship Webinar Series:  

Highly active research universities are dependent on strong connections to scholarship and research data output. At Drexel, the Libraries provides a variety of resources, support services and partnerships to facilitate and build such connections, from ensuring access to authoritative information to shaping future research by providing—and guiding the effective use of—tools and systems to facilitate global connections to Drexel-generated research output.  

Through the Libraries' new Connecting to Scholarship webinar series, expert librarians share their knowledge of these tools and systems to support Drexel faculty and researchers’ productivity and to prepare graduate students and professional staff for successful research practices.  

Designed for anyone who does research, webinars in the series will address issues such as:  

  • How to find funding through the Pivot database 

  • How to navigate changes to the APA Style Guide 7th edition 

  • How to choose a repository for your research  

  • Using Sage Research Methods to demystify social science research  

  • What’s new in PubMed 

  • Navigating archival research and archives 

  • and more
