Today, my Professional Development Anthropology class visited Joyner Library to learn about using specific databases for conducting all types of anthropological research. Our host, Professor Bryna Coonin of Joyner Library Academic Services, provided an excellent overview and examples on how to use the library’s databases. We were located in the one of the computer rooms on the first floor of Joyner.
Since this Professional Development Anthropology class consist of primarily juniors and seniors, they were mostly interested in how to use the library resources once they graduated. Dr. Coonin suggested that using Google Scholar, interlibrary loan and any particular state’s Live databases can assist professionals with their future research activities.
Check out a couple of photos from our visit.
