The Engineering & Physical Sciences libraries offer a wide variety of tailored instruction sessions. These include workshops on how to use writing tools such as Overleaf and Zotero, identifying and using geographic information system (GIS) and mapping tools, and programming for data analysis and visualization. Faculty and instructors can also request course-integrated instruction, in which a librarian teaches one or more sessions in support of an assignment in the classroom or on Zoom. For more information about our workshops and instruction sessions, please visit the Events & Instruction from the Engineering & Physical Sciences Libraries guide or contact us.
