Library Services on the Surface
Join librarian Christine Forisha for an introduction to library services: how to navigate the website, making use of your liaison librarian, how to get help, and more! Perfect for new and transfer students, as well as anyone who has felt intimidated by using the library online.
Getting Your Feet Wet with Library Resources
In this workshop librarian Michael Skinner will offer more information on using the library's resources: what is interlibrary loan, how to choose a database and where to find it, advanced search tips, and more! Designed for all users, especially those who haven't had a library instruction session in class.
Deep Dive into Library Tools
Librarian Christine Forisha is back with more extensive information about using library resources (especially from off campus), specific collections held by the library, and special tools that can keep your research organized and shareable. Ideal for upper division and graduate students and new faculty.
Liaison Suzanne Abbey will introduce workshop attendees to the wide variety of content available in Anatomy.tv, like interactive models of human anatomy, animations, interactive learning activities and more. If you are studying human anatomy and physiology or other subjects that require an understanding of human anatomy and physiology, Anatomy.tv may just be the resource you are looking for!
