Library Workshops

 

UNH Library Workshop Series Spring 2015

The ability to find and analyze information is a critical skill for your academic success. Workshops are open to the entire UNH community. Drop in to any or all of these sessions to learn about library research and databases.  It’s a good opportunity to get your questions answered in a small group environment.

 Workshops are held in Library Room 213 unless otherwise noted. You might find it helpful to bring your laptop or charge one out at the library circulation desk to use for the duration of the session (Current UNH ID required).

 In addition to these workshops, you can arrange for a 1-on-1 individual research consultation with a librarian for help on any of these topics or any research related issues by calling 203-932-7189, e-mailing libraryhelp@newhaven.edu or stopping by the information desk.

 If you are unable to attend a workshop, video recordings of workshops can be found at http://libguides.newhaven.edu/workshops
