Mini Lessons

The library wants to offer a variety of workshops to help students and faculty get research and teaching jobs done more efficiently. We’ve been listening to common requests and are planning to offer small group workshops on the following:

  • Making professional looking books with Blurb and iPhoto
  • Getting the most out of MS Word 2007
  • Using MS Publisher 2007 to make newsletters and posters
  • NYC and NYS statistics: where to find them
  • Cool web based research tools
  • Children’s Literature resources in the library
  • APA class


We also plan to make follow-up, online tutorials for patrons to view at a later date. If you have a great idea for a workshop let us know by leaving a comment below, or talk to us in person at the reference desk.
