While the research literature grows at an exponential rate, the time available to graduate students to discover, read, and evaluate the importance of literature in one’s field of study remains fixed. Through discussion, mini-lecture, and hand-on activities participants in this workshop will explore strategies to keep current with the literature in their field of study as well as to use their time effectively to accomplish that goal. Strategies discussed include: citation chaining and cited reference searching; pre-print repositories; database & publisher alerts.  Social media strategies will be lightly touched upon. Those studying in the social sciences, humanities, the sciences, and technology will be able to incorporate at least one of these strategies into their ongoing practice.
