Objects of Research: Intro to Library Special Collections for Undergraduates
Tuesday, January 26
5:30-7:30pm
Thompson Library Gallery
RSVP

Join us for an opening event at Thompson Library to explore the current exhibit Dancing in the Streets: Carnival from Britain to Brazil and Beyond. Curators Nena Couch and Lesley Thomas will offer a walkthrough of the exhibit to discuss their research process in the special collections. They will then show students how to conduct objects-based research and how to utilize special collection resources.

OSU Libraries are home to several special collections, which are not available for circulation. The collections include a wealth of objects from clothing and theatrical set designs to sculptures and bizarre trinkets. As a student, you are welcome to explore the special collections yourself and are invited to conduct your own research with objects. Come to learn how you can get started. No research experience required!

IRB Training for Undergraduates
Tuesday, February 9
5:30-6:30pm in the Research Commons
RSVP

Are you interested in working with human subjects or their data in your research?  Do you need IRB approval?  Not sure?  Doing research that involves human subjects, especially in the Social and Behavioral Sciences and allied fields, requires prior approval from an Institutional Review Board (IRB). Come learn about the approval process, and know the rules before you start!

Lab Eitquette for the Beginning Researcher
Thursday, February 11
5:30-6:30pm in the Research Commons
RSVP

When undergraduate students join a laboratory, they are walking into a new environment that has more rules than a typical workspace. Some rules will become obvious very rapidly, but many are not explicitly written anywhere. Figuring out the rules and knowing good lab etiquette is essential for success. In this session we will go over some basic lab etiquette rules and provide tips on how to figure out the laboratory’s unique culture and expectations.

Guidelines to Keeping a Good Lab Notebook
Wednesday, February 17
5:30-6:30pm in the Research Commons

Keeping records of your research is crucial to a successful project in any field of study. Many undergraduate researchers are working in laboratories, where they are asked to keep a laboratory notebook. This session will teach you how to maintain and organize your lab notebook to keep track of protocols, experiments, and results. Join Dr. Marcela Hernandez to learn the secrets to maintaining a great lab notebook, whether you are currently in a research lab or interested in joining one!
