1. Citation Seminar

Based on a suggestion from Dr. Q Richardson in the Peer Learning Lab and supported by feedback from other departments, the library will be hosting a Citation Seminar in Library Classroom 2, shortly before midterms, on February 13 from 5:30-7:30pm. It will be drop-in time for students to ask questions about citations and citation styles with snacks provided.
