Greetings, Researchers. Director of Academic Services, Andy Newgren, and Reference Librarian, Kate Skrebutenas, invite you to refresh and enhance your research skills by attending any or all of the training sessions we will be offering in the fall semester. We will be meeting in the computer lab in the lower level of Luce. For four weeks, we will offer two hands-on sessions on a particular set of resources. Training will be held one morning and one afternoon a week, and will last approximately 30 minutes. There is no advanced registration required for any of the sessions. We hope you will attend, but if none of these fit your schedule, we will be happy to arrange an individual consultation.
