Literature Reviews and Database Searching for Engineers

Literature Reviews and Database Searching for Engineers

You need to write a literature review for your research or class... but how do you get started? What kinds of literature reviews are there? Where should you search? How do you search efficiently and effectively? Learn the answers to these questions and more in this interactive workshop.

By the end of this session, you’ll be able to:

  • Identify different types of literature reviews
  • Find relevant engineering and related databases
  • Create effective searches

This workshop will focus on research in engineering, including computer science. Participants from other disciplines are welcome, but should be aware of the disciplinary focus of this workshop. 

This session will be offered live via Zoom and will be recorded and sent out afterwards to all who register. While we encourage attendance during the live virtual session so that you can interact with the instructor and ask questions, you're welcome to sign up for the session to receive the recording of it afterwards even if you can't attend it live. 

If you are an individual with a disability and desire an accommodation, please email lisab5@vt.edu at least 10 business days prior to the event.
