A Semester of Learning

Thank you to all the students, faculty, and staff, who came to the library for our workshops this semester! It was a rewarding experience for us, too, and we are grateful for all 765 of you for joining us in a semester of learning & discovery!

We welcomed the term with our new instruction space, the bright and sunny Curiosity Lab. Library staff developed 29 pre-scheduled workshops for you on topics including:

  • Literature Reviews
  • Chinese Databases
  • Finding Data & Statistics
  • Stata & R
  • Business Information
  • Tableau, Gephi, & Python
  • Online Learning
  • GIS & Mapping Tools
  • Citation Tools (RefWorks Zotero, and Endnote)

In addition, we taught 39 in-class workshops by faculty request. Librarians and technologists work with courses to introduce resources, tools, and targeted strategies for course research.

The Library looks forward to Spring 2018, with more workshops. If you’d like to recommend a research topic, or if you are an instructor and would like to know more about having a research or technology workshop for your class, please email us!
