Are you confused about how to navigate the library? Do you need helping figuring out what database to use and what search terms to put in the search box? Have questions about peer review or empirical articles? Do you wish you could actually watch how a search is done and have the ability to ask questions at the same time?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then attend a Grand Canyon University Library webinar!

Webinars are a great way to learn how to use different databases and learn how to get help from the GCU Librarians! We can show you how to develop your searches, what key words to use and how to set up a search for peer reviewed articles. Have your questions answered by a librarian in real time as the webinar unfolds!

The Library presents regular webinars that are both general and subject specific and include the following options:

  • Library Introduction
