ULS/iSchool Digital Scholarship Workshop Lecture & Series
Staff from the ULS have partnered with faculty and doctoral students from the School of Information Science to present a recurring workshop series exploring the topics and tools of digital scholarship. These hands-on sessions give you the opportunity to explore digital or data-intensive methods for analysis and communication.

Please check back later for workshops details and dates.


The Craft of Undergraduate Research Proposals
This workshop—a partnership of the Office of Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (OUR), the University Library System, and faculty members from the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences—is designed to teach undergraduates how to craft effective independent research proposals. Participants will learn techniques to strengthen proposals and discuss best practices with faculty experts. Students considering applying for OUR Spring Undergraduate Research Awards, field studies programs, or other spring and summer opportunities for independent research are encouraged to register.
Please check back later for details.


ULS/ Clinical and Translational Science Institute Workshops
Researchers seeking to prevent misconduct in their research teams and communities should be prepared to recognize the threats to research integrity that may arise. In this workshop, we will discuss myths about misconduct that may hamper early identification of questionable research practices or misconduct.
Please check back later for details.


Citation Management Tools
Endnote and Mendeley classes are one and a half hours long, and are free of charge for all Pitt affiliates. Each training session will cover creating an account, searching resources and exporting citations, organizing citations, attaching files to citations, creating and formatting bibliographies, and inserting citations automatically into documents.

ETD Workshops
We can teach you how to use Pitt's MS Word template and Adobe Acrobat Pro to properly format your paper.
