ProQuest Research Companion - Trial

Our latest free trial is ProQuest Research Companion.

A new cloud-based information literacy solution for student researchers and educators that guides students through the research process and helps them develop their critical thinking and information literacy skills.

Studies have shown that today's researchers are unequivocally overwhelmed with too much information and data—throughout all the stages of research process. Developed by writing instructors and librarians, Research Companion combines multimedia-based learning modules and powerful quick-start evaluator tools into one resource.

The Learning Modules are organized into easily digestible sections and are structured as nine commonly asked researcher questions which provide a foundation and context for finding, evaluating, and using information. The modules cover such topics as "Where do I start?" to "How do I avoid plagiarism and find my own voice?" to “What’s the best way to revise?” They are delivered as a series of visually compelling and inventive videos, or in a full-text, readable format and are written in a conversational style that improves learning outcomes and maximizes retention.

You can access the trial on campus until the 11 December 2014 using this address:
