Students from the Honors Program course Research Skills for Science Students (IDH3931) from fall 2006 semester, taught by Sara Russell Gonzalez and Margeaux Johnson at Marston Science Library

Sara Russell Gonzalez, physical sciences librarian at Marston Science Library, and Margeaux Johnson, who also works at Marston, taught a class last fall for the Honors Program, covering such topics as scientific writing, using library resources, public communication skills, research ethics and more.

 "When I first started doing research in science, what I found was that I had the academic knowledge, but lacked the research skills. So I wanted to offer a course for undergraduates planning to do research that would cover the necessary research skills that they need to be aware of in order to be successful scientists," said Gonzalez.
