The fall term is kicking into gear and hopefully all new and returning students, staff, and faculty are as well. We’ve been waiting for it and have free workshops and webinars (for those of you unable to come to campus) available to teach you new skills or update your existing ones.
Check out workshops for Prezi (and other dynamic presentation tools), learn how to do an advanced web search and use Google Scholar, create your e-portfolio and a website, and learn to use Zotero for making bibliographies and in-text citations easier.

Google sites and other e-portfolio tools:
Graduation requirement or not, e-portfolios are a tool to highlight your work and help land that first job. This workshop will get you started creating a Google Sites e-portfolio and introduce several other free e-portfolio builders.
Zotero – Citation management tool:
Save all your sources–books, articles, and web sites–in one place and automatically create bibliographies and in-text citations using a tool that lives in your web browser. Add anything you’re viewing with one click.
Please register at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled research workshop/webinar and be on time.
There will be workshops and a webinar offered in October as well.
