About clinics & workshops

The library offers a variety of workshops and drop-in clinics designed to help you get the most out of library resources, from essential databases to citation and productivity managers, to digital humanities tools.

  • Attend a library workshop to sharpen your research skills.
  • Workshops require you to sign up ahead of time so we know how many people to expect. Examples of the kinds of workshops we have are:
