Join the James A. Gibson Library, members of the Learning Commons and the Faculty of Graduate Studies on Dec. 10 for a day of workshops and presentations designed to highlight the most forward-thinking research tools, teaching and career planning for graduate students.
Morning sessions, led by the library, include:
