Upcoming Workshops

Identify scholarships and awards using Foundation Center resources at these free workshops. Learn about resources available to find scholarships, tools to start your search, how to tailor your search based on your field of study, and tips for an efficient search.

Learn how to use the new library’s website to become a more efficient researcher. This workshop will demonstrate how to search the NovaCat catalog and library databases.

This online workshop will cover APA citation formatting for in-text and reference list citations.

All times are Eastern. Online library workshops use GoTo Training. For more information about using GoToTraining, contact NSU’s Help Desk.
