The free trial to ProQuest Research Companion is available within the university’s network until December 31st, 2015.
ProQuestResearch Companion is a multimedia-based information literacy resource, which is built to help students do more effective scholarly research and to support educators as they teach the core information literacy principles of finding, evaluating, and using information.
More than 80 short videos are organized into nine Learning Modules that answer questions like "How do I choose a topic?" "Where do I find information?" and "How do I evaluate sources?" Different kinds of "pre" and "post" assessment questions make the viewing experience more interactive, while allowing educators to measure students’ learning and identify gaps in their understanding. Check out this video for a quick overview of the ProQuest Research Companion.
