Getting Credit

Some instructors offer extra credit for attending a Library workshop. Here is how you get proof of attendance:

  1. At the end of the session, you will be given a quiz.
  2. You will complete the quiz. 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 and review with you any answers that you missed. Then, 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.
