These workshops specifically designed for international students will cover:

- Finding Books using the MERLIN Catalog and Google Books (Use the right online search tools to locate books in the library, find books on a topic, find books that even mention a topic, and retrieve books from other libraries)
- Writing your Paper and Citing your Sources (Don’t make the mistake of using other researchers’ findings and ideas in your paper without proper credit)
