A very wise man, S. R. Ranganathan, created 5 Laws of Library Science. My personal favorite is #4: Save the time of the reader (or researcher).

We’re here to help you save some time with another crop of library workshops.

Our Library Instruction & Outreach track offers in-person workshops. This semester focuses on predatory journals and sharing your published articles. The Online Workshops cover literature research, annotated bibliographies, using citation managers, predatory journals, and other topics.

Special Collections provides seminars and lectures based upon the rare and archival materials they care for. Presenters include JHU researchers and guest lecturers. They also host events like Commemoration Day Cupcakes. (They save you time AND feed you!)

If you’re more of a data person, you should attend one or more of the Research Data Management workshops. They cover best practices in data management and sharing, open science, and human subject data.

GIS & Data Services workshops focus on moving data into mapping software and using that for your research and course needs.

Aside from these workshops, the Sheridan Libraries offer many tools to help you with your library research. The Reference Consultation Office and Information Desk is on M-level, and a help desk for data and GIS is on A Level. We also offer an Ask a Librarian service, or you can contact your liaison librarian directly with any questions you may have.

We hope you’ll take advantage of these opportunities. Please let us know if there are other topics you’d like to learn about.
