Library Researcher Series: Intro to Critical Appraisal

A drop-in workshop series offered by the University Library in Fall and Winter terms.

Session Description

In this session, participants will learn about how to read a scholarly paper to get the most out of it, and get some hands-on practice by using elements of critical appraisal. Critical appraisal is the process of assessing and interpreting research by considering its relevance, validity and reliability. This can sound daunting but it doesn't need to be!
