September 8, 2023 — 

UM Libraries offer Fall workshops and new drop-in study sessions to students at all levels starting September 21.

Libraries Workshop Series – Fall 2023

In-person and online libraries workshops are offered to students at all levels, from undergraduates to advanced graduate researchers.  Join us to learn more about:

  • Searching for articles, books, and data
  • Using citations and reference tools
  • Research and publishing

Library Essentials

Library Essentials workshops introduce students to research skills and technologies. These workshops are primarily for undergraduates that are new to academic research, but all students are welcome to attend.

GradSteps at the Libraries

UM Libraries offer additional workshops each semester covering a wide variety of topics (e.g., searching & databases, citation management, publishing & peer-review, research process, open scholarship). These workshops are cross-listed with the GradSteps workshop series offered by the Faculty of Graduate Studies and count for co-curricular credit under the new Experience Record program. See the full list of the Libraries’ GradSteps workshops available this Fall on the upcoming workshops calendar.

The Graduate Student Research Series

This series comprises a set of six workshops to help graduate students develop knowledge and skills to help them as they move through the different stages of their degree. It is a part of the Libraries’ GradSteps workshops and count towards credit with the Faculty of Graduate Studies’ Experience Record program. Students can register for all six workshops or choose the workshops that interest them. See below for more information.
