Fall has arrived and will soon be in full swing! As you begin to get into gear please note that the U of I Library has expanded its offerings of instructional assistance. The workshops, videos, web pages and tutorials are meant to provide options for learning how to use the Library's vast resources.
NOTE: The workshops and other instructional options listed below will *not* replace the basic, mandatory, library research session which is required of all MSW students.
The Savvy Researcher Workshop Series are drop-in workshops geared toward graduate students and cover a myriad of topics including RefWorks, RSS feeds and current awareness tools, how to find grant money, statistical research, IDEALS and finding the tough stuff e.g. conference proceedings.
You can access the schedule off the Library Gateway under "Get Help" --> Workshops.

Note: These sessions are suggested as an option to help you with more in-depth coverage of many research resources the library offers.
