Hone your research skills at Steenbock library’s drop-in workshops

Two introductory drop-in workshops will be offered at Steenbock Library before classes begin.   They are open to everyone in the UW community-faculty, staff and students.   You’re invited to attend, or to recommend them to new students or others who might be interested.
