Library Workshop program descriptions, schedule, and online sign-up form.

Online Workshops

All workshops are offered online for the rest of Spring 2020.


Students have two options: 

1) Take a live online session during scheduled times. If you would like to take a live session, see more information on this page

2) Take a self-paced workshop any time through Canvas. If you would like to learn more about that option, continue reading this page and/or watch the video below. More self-paced workshops will be added here shortly. 


Need some flexibility in your schedule or just prefer online self-paced learning? Try the online version of the Finding and Evaluating Articles workshop.


Watch the video below to learn about the online workshops and how to enroll. Our online workshops are offered through Canvas which is the system that Mt. SAC uses for its online courses. If you've never used Canvas before, don't worry. We provide a lot of instructions and help throughout the workshops. 


The video shows how to enroll yourself in the workshops. 


The links to enroll in and access the online workshops are below the video.

Need to Know

What if I want to take the workshops on campus instead of online?

For the rest of the spring semester, no on-campus workshops will be offered. You can take a live online workshop or self-paced workshop (described above). See the workshop homepage for more information about the live online option.  

Which workshops can I take any time I want, self-paced, in Canvas?

The Finding and Evaluating Articles workshop is ready for you now, any time, at your own pace, in Canvas. 

The Finding and Evaluating Books workshop will be ready for you by next week - April 6, in Canvas. It is being revised to reflect the new library system. 

The Developing Research Topics workshop will be ready for you in Canvas within the next few weeks. 

The Evaluating Websites workshop may only be offered live online.

How do I take the online workshop?

We are using the self-enrollment feature in Canvas. See the steps to take to enroll yourself in the video toward the top of this page. (The printable guide is being updated.) 

What kind of equipment do I need to take the workshops online?

You'll need a computer or other device with an Internet connection and speakers or headphones if you want to listen to the videos (all videos are captioned). 

How will I receive proof that I completed the online workshop to give to my professor?

For the online workshops that you take through Canvas, you will receive an email message to the email address that you provide on your assignment. Be sure to write your correct email address and follow the instructions for submitting the assignment. 

What if I have questions about the workshops?

You can ask a librarian online. Or if you are already enrolled in an online workshop, login to Canvas and click on "Help" on the far left side. Then click on "Ask your instructor a question."
