During the workshop you will need a notebook with the program Zotero installed, follow these instructions. If you don't have a notebook, install Zotero on your pc and make sure that you can work together with a fellow student who does have a notebook available at the workshop.
Through a series of in-class assignments, incorporated and described in this LibGuide, students train diverse aspects of searching for academic literature in small groups. In their own pace groups work through 6 modules.The assignments in each module build towards a final assignment which is outlined in more detail below.
Create a list of publications in Zotero on the topic your group has chosen and is relevant in the context of intermediality in media and culture.
Criteria of assessment
You can start your research anywhere and anytime. Both the resources for searching literature and the literature itself are often available online. Yet the library as a physical space remains important.
