Upskill Tuesdays and Thursdays

This AY 2021-2022, we are taking our webinar series to a whole lot level with Upskill Tuesdays and Thursdays!

Upskill will talk about our library services and resources to shed light on some of the most frequently asked questions regarding their features and functions. We will break down all the details to make sure all library resources are accessible and usable. Each episode will focus on two to three resources, and discuss how our students can make the most of each one. Upskill will be hosted by our Reference Librarians every Tuesday and Thursday mornings and will run for the whole semester via Zoom.
