Emory students, staff and faculty might not realize this, but many of the Emory Libraries offer drop-in workshops throughout the academic year that help them learn new skills, programs and software. 

“We cover a wide range of topics in our workshops, and we’re always open to hearing feedback, ideas and suggestions for future workshop programming,” says Sarah Morris, head of instruction and engagement for the Emory Libraries and subject librarian for English. 

Topics taught through Emory Libraries include Endnote, Zotero, Copyright and Your Dissertation, Documenting Data, Submitting Your Electronic Dissertation and many others. Emory Libraries is offering a new workshop on MAXQDA, a software program that allows users to code and analyze their qualitative research faster and more efficiently.

Emory Libraries will continue to offer training to faculty on Canvas, Emory’s learning management system. Some topics include Canvas 101, Gradebook, Quizzes, Using the Canvas Studio Video Tool, Using Turnitin (plagiarism checker). Many workshops can be attended online via Zoom. Faculty may also schedule one-on-one support appointments or email to open a help ticket.

The Emory Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS) offers workshops like Digital Storytelling, Understanding and Using Census Data, a GIS and mapping series, Python Coding, Git and Git Hub, Data Management, R Coding and Digital Accessibility tools.

Woodruff Health Sciences Center Library (WHSCL) holds workshops aimed at students in the health sciences. Popular offerings include PubMed for Public Health and Grey Literature: What Is It and How to Locate It. 

Goizueta Business Library hosts workshops exclusively for Goizueta Business School students, such as the BBA Business Essentials Junior Seminar program.
