The first workshop will provide an overview of topics related to document design, formatting, library resources and research tools, bibliographic styles, plagiarism, and copyright guidelines.

The second workshop is a hands-on interactive session to introduce students to methods for accessing Galvin Library’s online publications and best practices for conducting online research.

Each workshop is offered twice to accommodate as many students as possible, and students may attend more than one. The workshops are primarily for students who are either beginning the thesis writing process or have more writing to do. However, anyone may attend.
