Sciences librarians offer a wide variety of tailored instruction sessions for students, faculty, and staff.

Workshops include topics such as:

  • writing and citing tools such as Overleaf and Zotero.
  • identifying and using geographic information system (GIS) and mapping tools.
  • finding, reusing, organizing, and describing data.
  • data analysis and visualization tools.
  • planning literature reviews.
  • writing and publishing scientific papers.

Course-integrated instruction: Faculty and instructors can also request course-integrated instruction in support of an assignment or project. A librarian can meet with students during a class or discussion section, in person or on Zoom, to teach one or more sessions on searching, evaluating, saving, and organizing science information sources, as well as other topics.

For more information about our workshops and instruction sessions, please visit the Events & Instruction from the Sciences Libraries guide or contact us.
