Fall 2015 Microsoft Word workshops at Gorgas Library

Fall 2015 Academic Technologies workshop registration opened this week, and next week brings the first workshops of the semester: Academic Paper Formatting in Microsoft Word and References in Microsoft Word.

Learning how to use Word’s formatting and reference options allows you to meet assignment or publication requirements and focus on research and writing rather than fixing issues in your documents. These workshops are a particularly good fit for undergraduate students, and First-Year Writing Program students are especially encouraged to attend.

Here are the details:
