Library Workshops


Fall 2017 Workshops

Workshops are 1 hour and held in the Library's Collaborative Learning Space, unless otherwise indicated. They are free and open to all. Most workshops will have a LibGuide created, so if you can't make it, you can still review some of the materials on your own. We will link the guides as they are created.
