Grad school is already tough enough without having to think about just exactly how you’re going to put together your thesis or dissertation. Digital Librarians to the rescue! Come to this workshop, and we’ll talk you through the nuts and bolts of creating digital research content and submitting it. We’ll even teach you how to make an accessible PDF (though we promise to tell everyone that you already knew how). No matter where you are in your writing process, this workshop is for you. Come in out of the summer heat and leave with the confidence that you have your thesis/dissertation covered!
