The Library is launching a new workshop series titled Lunch Bags and Laptops. The goal is to offer you a hands-on chance to examine different aspects of scholarly publishing. The first workshop will help you uniquely identify yourself as an author. The second will walk you through the different metrics and altmetrics that are available.

You’ll need to bring your lunch and your laptop; the library will provide beverages and cookies. Register for each workshop below.
