30 Minutes to Success: Library Research Series for International Students

The library is hosting a series of 30 minute classes in March and April to help international students do library research smarter and faster. These short classes are designed to build your research skills just in time for your final assignments! Each class is taught by our international student services librarian, Yi Han. Yi completed her Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science in the United States, so not only is she an expert researcher but she also has tons of personal experience as a former international student.
