This summer, UDTS, the Division of Instructional Technology (DoIT) and Allison Meyer O'Connor of the Johnson Center Library, are teaming up again to offer another series of our 3-part workshops! Dates and times are as follows:

Tuesday, June 21, 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Wednesday, June 29 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Monday, July 11, 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Thursday, July 21, 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

All workshops will take place in Innovation Hall, room 334, and will have three segments:

Part 1: Sally Evans, Coordinator of University Dissertation and Thesis Services, will give an overview of UDTS and the process grad students need to go through in order to graduate--specifically, the format review, submission consultation, and final submission of your thesis or dissertation.

Part 2: Abel Roasa of DoIT will lead a session on formatting your thesis or dissertation using Microsoft Word. Even if you feel pretty confident with this program, Abel can show you some amazing tricks that will make formatting your document a breeze.

Part 3: Allison Meyer O'Connor will introduce you to Zotero, a research tool that helps you gather and organize your sources . . . and make them work for you, as citations, references, footnotes, you name it.

You can sign up for this workshop through the IT Training website: http://ittraining.gmu.edu/.

This workshop is open to graduate students from all departments, but you need to sign up as soon as possible. Seating is limited to 20 students.
