Winter Researcher Workshops

Looking for opportunities to advance your research skill set? The Researcher Workshop series, offered by the University of Manitoba Libraries, may be a great place to start!

Created to meet the research needs of faculty, graduate students, and researchers, these sessions will be beneficial to those looking to learn more about emerging issues such as systematic reviews, citation management, and predatory journals, and their influence on your research. These and similar technical topics are likely to continue to grow and to have a large impact on research going forward.

The training sessions will be held either online or in the Ross Computer Lab (Room 232) at the Neil John Maclean Health Sciences Library:
