Summer 2020 Residencies

Welcome to Lesley University Library's Summer 2020 Residencies Guide. As classes continue to transition to a fully online experience, Lesley Library has compiled all the information that would have otherwise been shared in orientations and class visits into a single guide.

Here you will find information on:
  • Research Skills Modules Lesley University Library is pleased to offer students a new interactive learning experience.  We have developed four stand alone modules that cover skills ranging from the foundations of research, reading research, academic integrity, and citing sources to the specifics of using the Lesley University Library's resources.
  • Library Resources Discover the most relevant tools the library can offer you, and how you can use a combination of them to your advantage. And what is "@LL Search" anyway?
  • Research Process So you have a topic. Now what? Find out how to get from Point Topic to Point Thesis, and know that the road to get there is not one linear path.
  • Citation Managers These software are a researcher's best friend and safety net. Learn about their purpose, advantages, and which one may be the right one for you.


Save the date! The following dates are our scheduled Zoom sessions divided by program and category. Links to each meeting will be provided through your respective programs. Note that these sessions are not required, but rather encouraged for those who feel they may benefit from the interaction and the chance to ask their questions "in person." For any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to us at
