Each semester the University Libraries offers workshops designed to strengthen the skills of students, faculty and staff in the use of online tools for research, presentation and teaching.  Faculty and instructors are welcome to encourage student attendance at library workshops and even offer extra credit for students that attend a workshop (certificates of attendance are available to students upon request).  Workshops are free and open to students, faculty, and the general public.
