The Lima Campus Library offers both individual and class-based instruction upon request. We can work with your class to build the perfect session, whether that's a quick introduction to the library and its resources or a more in-depth tutorial preparing them for advanced research.
If you prefer to use the Thompson Library site, it can be found here.
The Research Commons is a community where graduate students, faculty, and postdoctoral researchers can connect with experts for support at any stage in the research lifecycle, including workshops, consultations, events, and more.
