We offer ongoing, regular occuring workshops on key resources throughout the semester. These sessions are typically held via Zoom and are open to anyone at Columbia. They are held weekly at various days and times to make them easy to fit into your schedule, and are all one hour or less.

Popular workshops include:

  • Getting Your Bearings: An introduction to library essentials, including services and collections
  • Let’s Use CLIO: A hands-on workshop on using the catalog to find books and other library materials
  • Database Demo: A demonstration-based session on how to search various databases effectively (ProQuest, JSTOR, etc.)
  • Citation Management with Zotero: A primer on the free, easy-to-use citation management software Zotero

Instructors can schedule a tailored library instruction session on software tools or library services for small groups.

The Columbia University Libraries provides a range of programs and services to enhance the teaching and scholarship of faculty and other instructors, including course sessions, research appointments, and teaching with special collections.
