The computer workstation in the Audio-Visual room is a one-stop place for digitizing audio, video and documents.  The workstation includes an Epson scanner with a document feeder, which provides for the efficient scanning of multi-page documents.  The workstation also includes a VCR with computer-interface, which allows users to convert VHS videos to a variety of digital video formats.  The workstation is for faculty, staff and doctoral student use.


Spring 2015 Library Workshops

All workshops are conducted in the Teaching Lab.

Introduction to Graduate Research

Graduate-level research requires more than basic searching. You will learn how to use GRACE, the GTU library’s online catalog, to find books and other resources, and how to use the ATLA, JSTOR, and 360 Search databases to locate full-text journal articles or citation information. Workshops will be approximately 1 hour.
