I really enjoyed this workshop. Wendy was very informative, engaging, and well-prepared, and I hope she'll teach more workshops with similar skills in the future. I'd love to learn more about this!

I learned a lot about becoming a more efficient researcher, and letting technology do some of the legwork of searching for journal articles in my field!

This tour is excellent because not only did Jamie do a great job of showcasing and explaining the art work, but the pieces are often hidden right next to campus buildings, and are often not seen because people don't know that they are there. I highly recommend this tour to anyone, whether they are interested in art or not.

I realized after signing up that this session was not available online. It would be helpful to record it for those folks to watch it if they were not able to attend like me. It is important to be a savvy google searcher.
