In Wheelock Library workshops, students engage in active exploration of information literacy problems that are integrated into their coursework. These dynamic research workshops are taught by professional librarians and designed in collaboration with Wheelock faculty.
Scheduling a Research Workshop
Workshops are 60-90 minutes long. Contact us early with your workshop request and be prepared to share your syllabus and assignment description.
Choose a workshop, or build your own
Choose a workshop from our Research Workshop Menu. If nothing on the menu suits your fancy, a librarian can work with you to build a workshop that meets your goals for the course. In both cases, we will collaborate closely to ensure that the workshop is integrated into your course and supports your assignment.
