About the Savvy Researcher Workshop Series

With over 60 different titles taught each semester, join us for workshops on a wide variety of advanced research and information management topics. Our workshops are taught by subject liaison librarians, campus partners, and graduate students in our iSchool program.

Workshop topics include general research skills (including citation management, literature reviews, and much more), data discovery and management, digital humanities, geographic information systems (GIS), scholarly communication (including copyright, author’s rights, creating online profiles), sharing your research (including poster presentation and design), and lots more. We add new workshops every semester — if you have suggestions or feedback, please reach out to us.

You can view the schedule for the semester on our Savvy Researcher calendar.

Workshops can also be requested for graduate student study groups, faculty meetings, departmental events, etc. Take a look at our lineup for Spring 2022!

We are pleased to bring our workshops to Zoom beginning in the fall 2021 semester. Going forward, we will be offering a hybrid of online and in-person workshops.


Subscribe to GradLinks for a reminder of workshops for the following week each Sunday afternoon during the semester. For questions, please contact us at savvyresearcher@library.illinois.edu.

The Savvy Researcher workshop series offers hands-on sessions during the fall and spring semesters. During the summer and breaks between semesters, please refer to our corresponding Savvy Researcher LibGuides for asynchronous assistance.
