Item Open AccessArcher Library Award 2021 - Reflective Essay (University of Regina Library, 2021-01) Marko, BonnieThe University of Regina's library services is of great assistance when conducting various research types at any study level, including the undergraduate. Upon entering the University, I was reluctant to use the University of Regina’s library databases to find papers, presentations, and analyses. Moving into my last year of University, I have found out that library services are essential for any successful research and academic writings. I appreciated the seminar presentation conducted by Mary Chipanshi, KHS liaison Librarian to our Health Studies 400 class in the fall of 2020. After the seminar, she made herself available to address further concerns where I asked her some questions about how to search about my selected research topic. I also had some questions about APA 7 citations as it had recently been introduced. The live assistance and online library services allowed me to access many articles in full text and the location of the common databases for health research. I learned so many new techniques that were valuable when utilizing research engines and databases. In addition to this, the library website very user friendly once you have the correct tools to navigate the system. Item Open AccessEthnography Qualitative Research Methods Literature Review(University of Regina Library, 2020-11) Marko, BonnieThere are many methods of qualitative research that are successful in the analysis and collection of data. Additionally, these methods enable researchers to become more knowledgeable by utilizing their specific concerns or inquiries. It also allows researchers to understand individuals, groups, or populations from the perspective and experiences. Ethnography is an effective way to collect and gather data in qualitative research. Through my analysis of research articles, some potential challenges and barriers may be present in some research settings.
