Our wonderful librarians have devised a series of workshops, many of which may be of interest to you. The following are the ones offered in the evenings:
Formatting Your Research Paper: This workshop will go over citation management features of Microsoft Word as well as how to format a document to automatically generate a Table of Contents, a Bibliography, and Footnotes (though the last isn’t required in APA, so is less relevant for our classes, FYI). Wednesday, November 4, 5-5:30PM

Excel – Introduction and Basic Commands. Learn how to create a basic spreadsheet and make simple charts and graphs. Wednesday, November 18, 4:30-5:00PM.
