Workshops for Graduate Students

The O’Neill Center for Academic Development and the St. Catherine University Libraries announce our Spring 2017 workshops for Graduate students. The dates and topics of workshops are listed below. Students in all graduate programs are being notified by email from the GSAB.

All of these workshops are face-to-face on the St. Paul campus. While we do not currently have equivalent tutorials for online and distance students, an APA research guide (under construction) will link to similar online content that may interest you.
