Get Help! Upcoming Library Workshops

Now that you’re back from spring break, you may be staring down that research paper due at the end of the semester. The library has your back with a series of workshops on different parts of the research process. Keep reading to see which one may be right for you. (You can also view all our workshops at once in our events calendar.) All workshops will take place in the Research Instruction Center (Room 11) on the library’s lower level.

Wondering why it matters if you cite your sources? Come to:

Citing Sources Workshop (presented jointly with the Writing Center)

Why do your professors spend so much time talking about citations? Does it feel like busywork? Come learn how to cite sources for any format. We’ll show you how to do it, where to find resources, and why you should care.

Have sources or a bibliography you need help with? Bring it with you!

Two sessions:

  • Monday, March 28, 2:15 to 3:15 (during activity period)
  • Tuesday, March 29 from 5:00 to 6:00

(Please RSVP to for this workshop)

Having trouble keeping track of those sources you’re supposed to cite? Victim of a second-rate citation generator? Come to:

RefWorks Workshops for Students

These workshops for students will provide an introduction to RefWorks, an online bibliographic management tool. Learn to export citations, create bibliographies, and save and organize sources for all your research papers and projects – all in one place. Have sources you’re not sure how to cite? Bring them with you and we’ll help you get them right.

Three sessions:

  • Wednesday, March 23, 12:45 to 1:45 (during activity period)
  • Thursday, April 7, 1:00 to 2:00
  • Tuesday, April 12, 11:00 to 12:00

(Please RSVP to for this workshop. We also strongly recommend that you create a RefWorks account before attending, at RefWorks’ website. This works best when you are on campus.)
