The Rio Hondo College Library is holding several workshops in November
The fall 2022 semester at Rio Hondo College is nearly over, but Rio Hondo Library is now hosting multiple workshops throughout November, through early December.
The Rio Hondo Library workshops opened on Monday, November 7 and will be available to students until Friday, December 2. The workshops will cover topics such as the use of the library catalogue, online databases and the prevention of plagiarism.
Most workshops can be taken in person at the Learning Resource Center (LR) in room 224 or online, via Zoom. With the online option, students can watch the pre-recorded workshop any time of the day or week.
The Zines! and Microsoft/Google Apps labs are the only two that students cannot access online. Students must take both on campus. However, Zines! workshop is the only one to take place at the LR-230.
After completing a workshop, students can take an online quiz to receive credit. The Rio Hondo Library website notes that this is especially helpful for students using the workshop as extra credit or class assignment.

Rio Hondo students have already received emails with the exact dates and times of the workshops. Information is also available online, on the Rio Hondo Library website.
Students are required to wear masks inside the Rio Hondo Library and for in-person workshops. The Rio Hondo Library has additional resources for students, including access to study spaces, computers, and research assistance.
