Research Skills Workshop with MACC

Saturday, November 3, 3-5pm
Organized by the Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council press working group

We all know that knowledge is power, but researching this knowledge properly can sometimes be a challenge. Between questionable sources, paywalled articles and more search results than anyone could conceivably get through, it’s easy to go looking for something online and finding everything but the thing you needed. Members of the Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council’s press working group will be available to share some of their tips and tricks on building your skills and capacities as a researcher, and answer whatever questions you have on how to find the information you need.
