Please join us as representatives from SAGE Publishing will be on site to share tips and insights on using SAGE Research Methods and Data Planet for students, faculty, and library staff.

SAGE Research Methods is a comprehensive platform that helps users learn how to do original research. Books, case studies, datasets, and video cover the entire research process, including hundreds of qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods.

Data Planet, now part of the SAGE suite of statistical databases, is the largest single repository of harmonized and structured statistical data available to libraries. This dynamic tool allows users to easily scan and search the contents of billions of datasets, compare and contrast variables of interest, and create customized views in tables, maps, rankings, and charts.

Our two-day workshop will include general overviews of each product, as well as open houses for one-on-one help for anyone looking for resources for their research or courses.

Come to a single session or stay all day (optional). Some sessions were offered on Day 1 (**shown like so**).

Register for Day 1 here.
