Spring Library Workshops in Full Bloom

A new semester is in full swing, and once again the TWU Libraries are offering library training workshops to provide hands-on instruction to all interested TWU students, faculty and staff. Seating is limited, so make your reservations today.

These workshops are designed to provide information about library resources and search skills so that research may be conducted in a more effective and scholarly manner. The workshops are generally small in size, which allows them to be geared toward participants' individual research needs and disciplines.

To attend a workshop at the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus you must register at least 24 hours in advance by contacting Librarian Jimmie Lyn Harris at or 940-898-3740. Each workshop is limited to 12 participants and is held in the Reference Training Room on the 1st floor of the Blagg-Huey Library. For assistance stop by the Information Desk on your right as you enter the building. Jimmie Lyn also welcomes individual appointments.

Denton campus workshops currently scheduled:

Finding Articles
These workshops demonstrate how to use TWU Libraries resources to find information pertinent to a discipline or major. We'll discuss subject guides, full-text resources, basic and advanced search options, and search strategies.

Friday, March 2nd (10 a.m. to 11 a.m.)

Need help citing your papers? Do APA, MLA, Chicago and Turabian style manuals seem like mazes? Discover the wonders of RefWorks. RefWorks is a web-based citation management and formatting program available to all current TWU students, faculty and staff from any computer with web access. RefWorks can import citations from library databases and other bibliography programs such as Endnote and Reference Manager.

Thursday, March 8th (Noon to 1 p.m.)

Workshops available by appointment. For more information, contact Librarian Eula Oliphant at or 214-689-6580.
