Library Workshops

Welcome to Ingram Library's workshops! These learning opportunities aim to enhance your scholarly research and career-readiness competencies by guiding you through the process of conducting effective research using library resources, equipping you with the skills necessary to successfully locate credible sources, and enlarging your knowledge of crucial information literacies, particularly around the use of Artificial Intelligence. 

In addition to these workshops, the library offers one-on-one research consultations with subject librarians with research expertise in a variety of subjects. Librarians are here to support you throughout the research cycle, from forming a research question to how to manage data. Librarians will be available on the Library's main floor near Starbucks at the "Pop Up Reference Desk" on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday afternoons from March through Finals. Stop by to chat! Anytime, to meet with a subject librarian, click on "Get Help!" from the menu on the left.
