We also offer workshops throughout the quarter. Some of our most popular include:    

  1. Discover Rivera Library (basic library information)

-If there is a workshop that is not included here, you may request one.

What is the difference between an instruction session and a workshop?

*Instruction session: An instructor schedules a session to bring in his/her class to the library. The session is specific to that class.

*Workshop: These are sessions are for all students, staff and faculty! Workshops are offered throughout the year. Individuals can view and sign-up via our workshop page. If you want the library to offer a specific workshop, let us know, there might be others interested in the same topic. You can also schedule a tour of the library.  

To schedule an instruction session or sign-up for a workshop, visit our Instruction & Workshops page.
