Library workshops enhance research skills and now offer credit for grad students

Monday, September 12, 2016

Through a new partnership with the Graduate School, FSU Libraries are offering a number of workshops for advanced researchers that qualify for credit for the Preparing Future Faculty and Preparing Future Professionals programs. Library workshops cover a wide variety of topics, including citation management, literature reviews, primary sources, academic publishing, digital humanities tools and processes, business research, and much more.

“We’re proud to partner with the Graduate School to provide a fantastic way to enhance research skills and professional development while earning credits toward these great programs,” said Gloria Colvin, Head of the Scholars Commons at FSU Libraries.

Half-day research boot camps are scheduled for researchers in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, as well as for doctoral students working on their prospectus. Most workshops will be held in Strozier or Dirac libraries, but some will be held online. A complete list of workshops can be found at lib.fsu.edu/scholars-commons/workshops-fall-2016.

University Libraries provide a wealth of resources, a wide range of services, and a variety of study and meeting spaces to support graduate student and faculty research, teaching, and learning. The Scholars Commons, located on the lower level of Strozier Library, also offers office hours for statistics consulting, the Graduate Writing Center, and a Data and Text Analysis Lab.

For more information visit lib.fsu.edu/graduate-student-services and join us for our Fall Social for graduate students and postdocs on Friday, September 16 from 4 – 6 p.m. in the Bradley Reading Room at Strozier Library. Complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres will be provided.
