Research After Graduation
Georgetown offers you so many great resources to help you with your research. And you have spent anywhere from two to ten years honing your research skills to use them all. But what happens when you graduate? This guide, which was created for a joint Common $ense and Library workshop on Research After Graduation, pulls together some suggestions for searching the open web better and leveraging those skills to find freely available resources and tools.
The Library hosts a number of events every year, building a community of Hoyas, faculty, alumni, and community members who seek to continue on their journey of lifelong learning. Recent speakers have included former Chair of the Federal Reserve Janet Yellen, Man Booker Prize-Winning Author George Saunders, Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist Sara Ganim, world-renowned author and activist Father James Martin, SJ, and others. The Library will post Fall 2019 events in August - we look forward to seeing you!
