From the Library: Student Workshops
The Brendlinger Library is offering wonderful workshops for students this semester in our new Library classroom! They cover skills necessary for students to accomplish their assignments, papers and projects. The workshop sessions are on Wednesdays at down time – from 12:30 – 1:00 p.m. The classroom is on the main floor of the Library (the second floor of College Hall), near the main desk.
So far, sessions have been offered on:
