Workship series takes place over spring semester

University Libraries is offering a spring workshop series on a number of different topics, such as citation management, copyright, patent and trademark searching, author rights, video recording, determining where to publish, and more.

The University Libraries' workshop series is also sponsored by  the University Graduate School and the Graduate Student Association (GSA).
