Format Workshop for All Disciplines

In conjunction with Graduate Studies Resource Center, there will be two formatting workshops during Summer 2018 semester. Join us for a  presentation of university format rules for master’s level theses and project reports and review of advanced research techniques. Vivian Reed, the thesis evaluator, will review the specific format and submission requirements for all departments on campus. If you are just starting the thesis process stay to find out about Refworks and advanced search methods beyond what you learn in a typical library instruction session. One of the librarians from the University Library will share her expertise in getting the most from search engines and databases.
