Drop by and discover what you can do! Mason Libraries offers a variety of free workshops for students, faculty, and staff on all Mason campuses. Check our current calendar to see what’s scheduled.
During Spring 2014, Mason Libraries are piloting a new service: Workshops-by-Request! If you don’t see a workshop scheduled at a time or date convenient for you or your group, use Workshops-by-Request and either choose from the workshop topics already offered OR suggest a customized workshop for you or your group on a library research-related topic of your choice. A librarian or staff member with expertise and/or interest in your topic will contact you about the time, date, place, topic and/or area of research interest, and conduct the workshop. Try it!
