Grammar

Commas, colons, semicolons, oh my! This interactive workshop, back by popular demand, will help students
become sentence structure pros.

MLA Formatting

Tuesday, September 27, and Wednesday, October 5, 1 - 2 pm

MLA is the preferred format for many humanities disciplines. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll cover basic
formatting, in-text citations, works cited page, and students will have the opportunity to create their own
works cited pages using a variety of source types.

APA Formatting

Wednesday September 28, and Tuesday, October 4, 1 - 2pm

APA is the preferred format for many social and physical/life sciences. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll cover basic formatting, abstracts, in-text citations, reference pages, and students will have the opportunity to create their own reference pages using a variety of source types.

Plagiarism

Tuesday and Wednesday October 25 and 26, 1 - 2 pm

When students think of plagiarism, blatant copy/pasting is what comes to mind, but plagiarism is a complex issue. This student friendly workshop will use examples to show all forms of plagiarism including lesser understood infractions like paraphrasing without citation, missing or incorrect citations, and recycling work.

Students will become confident in summarizing, quoting, and paraphrasing and will gain insight into how
professors use these plagiarism tools. We’ll discuss collegiate expectations, why academic integrity matters, and strategies students can utilize for ensuring scholastic excellence.

Research

Tuesday and Wednesday, November 8 and 9, 1 - 2 pm

Research databases are an integral tool for all college students, but combing through so much information can feel overwhelming. This hands-on workshop demystifies the process of using library and scholarly databases.

We’ll discuss how to find reliable sources, do searches in real time, demonstrate helpful database features,
and strategies for finding the most relevant material. We’ll define source types, and students will have time to conduct their own searches, ask questions, and locate sources that meet professors’ requirements.
