Workshops at Fullerton College Library

We’re bringing back library workshops, with a twist. There are two threads of workshops taking place throughout the semester:

  • Rotating workshops focused on some of the most current and sometimes unexpected topics in information literacy today.
  • Gamified workshops that tackle how to find and evaluate information with an element of challenging fun.

For in-depth study of research strategies, we also offer on-going research education in the form of courses,  course-integrated library instruction sessions, and individualized support.

Check out how library services and sources can help you with your coursework today!
