Library Workshops

Library workshops will look a little different this year, some sessions were recorded to accomidate your time zone and schedule, and some workshops have been turned into guides that you can use at your own pace. We can also meet with you live on zoom. 

At this time we will not be offering any in-person, drop-in workshops. However, if you have a topic you are interested in, let us know and we can offer it live in zoom or as a recorded session.


Using the Library

This is an orientation video for new students, but if it's been a while since you have used the library from home, this video is for you too! Don't worry if you can't find your student ID card to login, the number is also listed in your student information system (where you register for classes) or you can ask your registrar. That number and your last name are all you need to access all the library offers from home.
