Live Online Library Sessions

The Hartness Library is offering free Live Library Sessions online for all CCV students! These instruction sessions presented by CCV librarians will be through Adobe Connect and will enable students to log in for research help and advice. Through December, three different sessions will be offered on a regular basis including...

1. Research Project Clinic: This is an open-ended workshop where students can get help identifying search terms, databases and other library and Internet resources. Students are encouraged to bring whatever they are working on and ask specific questions regarding their current assignments.

2. How To: Series – These interactive sessions teach how to search more effectively, get ideas, and other stuff. Two will be offered until the end of the semester (more to be added in the spring) including:

  • How To: Start Searching Smartly: Research basics—how find and narrow a topic, the best places to search, how to search successfully, etc.

  • How To: Select Super Sources: This workshop is designed to help identify and evaluate sources, develop critical evaluation skills for online resources, and become a better researching detective.
You can get more information about these sessions on the library’s portal page. Just log into Blackboard Portal (, click on the “CCV Hartness Library” tab then click on the “Live Library Sessions” button. For a full schedule of offerings, check out the interactive calendar below.
