Presentation Description

This presentation will focus on teaching information literacy skills to non-traditional doctoral students. Many of these students often expect to find scholarship for their literature reviews readily available online in full text, when in fact the opposite is true. By examining the characteristics of these students, strategies can be created to prepare students to conduct exhaustive literature reviews for their dissertations.
