Having difficulties with a project? Trying to land a job? The University of Toledo Carlson Library has you covered with weekly workshops they will be having on six different subjects throughout the months of February, March, and April.

“Part of the mission of The University Libraries is to enrich the student learning experience. These workshops are one of the many ways we are trying to engage students in the conversation that is research,” said Thomas Atwood, coordinator of information literacy and library instruction.

Topics for the workshops include getting your research started, endnote — -manage your research, company research for the job hunt, identifying fake news, internet privacy, and research in engineering.

All workshops will be held in Carlson Library Room 1025, except research in engineering, which will be held in the McMaster Engineering Library, Palmer Hall Room 2600.

“These workshops not only assist students who are working on research in their courses, helping them connect to better quality academic resources, saving them time and frustration, but also offer real-world skills that will make them better informed citizens,” Atwood said.

The mission of the University Libraries is to drive excellence in life-long learning, discovery and engagement.  Within a collaborative and interdisciplinary environment, they it aims to enrich the student learning experience, facilitate research at all levels, and engage the community through innovative educational services, resources and technologies.
