(Access recording password 7ZET1#S#) This presentation examines the planning process of implementing 12 workshops supporting all students in any discipline. The process was informed by lessons learned from previous workshops, which were created from the results of an in-depth analysis of five years of the literature review section of graduate theses, a survey of graduate students and faculty, and two years of student assessments in workshops.

The formation of the series was a partnership of librarians and teaching faculty to deliver the one-hour long workshops. The workshops covered various topics, such as organizing information, forming research questions, creating search queries, analyzing literature and writing an abstract. Each workshop was a stand-alone session with individual learning objectives and assessments, but the design allowed for scaffolding and some concepts were reinforced in other sessions. Several students contacted the organizer requesting workshop materials thereby indicating a need for instruction. Results showed that students found the workshops extremely useful.
