Research Assistants Attend Library Workshop
Several School of Business graduate research assistants attended an early October workshop entitled “Introduction to Library Resources” to learn about cutting-edge materials available at Mason’s world-class Fenwick Library.
Henson used the hypothetical research topic of “accounting fraud” to lead the group on an exploration of library resources that could be used to gather advanced research.
Laurie Meamber, area chair and associate professor of marketing, encouraged her graduate research assistant to attend the workshop. “I think it’s a good idea for graduate students, whether they are employed to do research or not, to become aware of the incredible resources offered at our library,” said Meamber. “For my research purposes, I’ve found the library to be invaluable for finding data on such topics as domestic and international consumer behavior, and marketing analytics, including geographic data analysis.”
Henson encouraged the workshop attendees to schedule individual follow-up appointments with her to focus on specific research interests.
