Registration has closed.

Harvard Librarians will introduce students to this essential research practice from three perspectives.


We’ll start by considering features and important functions of literature reviews. Then, we’ll point you to a few tried and true strategies for locating them in library databases and building on the research leads they give you. And finally, by listening to faculty and student voices, we’ll share some tips to consider when you construct a lit review of your own.


Bring your laptop or mobile device with you.


Workshop takes place in Lamont B30. 


This session is intended for sophomores considering social science concentrations, juniors taking their first tutorials or senior thesis writers who want a quick refresher, but all Harvard affiliates are welcome.  Please register to receive event reminder in advance of the session.
