Tell us how you do research!  
The Lilac Project is looking for participants in a study on student research activities.  The purpose of the study is to determine the relationship between what students are taught about library and online research and how students actually conduct research.

Participants will complete a brief questionnaire and participate in a research exercise that will record them conducting research while talking about what they are doing and why.  The study will only take about 20-30 minutes of your time and your participation will help us improve how students are taught research skills.

For more information, or to participate in the study, contact Dr. Katt Blackwell-Starnes at ablackwellst@lamar.edu.  Click on the image for more details.
You are invited to participate in a research study. The purpose of the study is to determine the relationship between what students are taught about library and online research and how students actually conduct such research.  Participants will complete a brief questionnaire and then participate in a research exercise that will record them conducting research on a topic while talking about what they are doing and why. The study will only take approximately 20-30 minutes of your time, but what we learn from this study may help improve how students are taught information-seeking skills (research skills) in the future.
