Library Workshop Schedule

Get your intro to library resources in these brief face-to-face sessions. Our 50-minute library workshops are held throughout the semester on the second floor of the LRC. Sign up in person at the Research Help desk, or call 916-558-2461.

We offer two different sessions. You can take one or both, in any order you like.

Workshop A

  • overview of library services
  • locate library books and other materials using the library catalog
  • learn to request items from other libraries

Workshop B

  • locate full-text magazine/journal/newspaper articles using library databases
  • understand basics of subscription database purposes and functionality

Getting Credit

Some instructors offer extra credit for attending one or both of the sessions. Here is how you get proof of attendance:

  1. At the end of the session, you will be given a worksheet.
  2. You will complete the worksheet. You can do this immediately after the session or you can do it later; you will need to be online to do the worksheet, but you do not have to do it inside the library.
  3. When you are done, bring the worksheet to the Research Help desk on the 2nd floor of the LRC.
  4. A librarian will check your work. If you complete the worksheet satisfactorily, you will receive a paper proof of completion that you can give to your instructor.

We recommend that you keep a copy of this paper slip, in case a second professor also requires proof of completion. The Library does not retain records of attendance at these sessions.
