Dear Students,

University Dissertation & Thesis Services (UDTS), the Division of Instructional Technology (DoIT), and University Libraries are happy to announce 
several Thesis & Dissertation Prep workshops this Spring 2012 semester.
There will be more to come, but the dates below are currently scheduled.

Each workshop will be 2 hours long, and each workshop will consist of the same 3 segments:

Segment 1: UDTS Coordinator Sally Evans will walk you through the steps you will need to fulfill in order to complete, format, and submit your thesis or dissertation, 
so that you can graduate on time.

Segment 2: Abel Roasa of DoIT will teach you to use the Interactive Template, which will make creating and formatting your thesis or dissertation a snap.

Segment 3: A member of University Libraries (usually Allison Meyer O'Connor) will introduce you to Zotero, a handy tool that first helps you organize your sources and references,
 then assists you in incorporating them into your document.

The workshops will take place at the following times, on the Fairfax campus:

Monday, February 20
10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Fenwick Library, Room A214 (2nd-floor Instruction Room)
