Think Like a Researcher Workshop Series

The University of Minnesota Libraries' Think like a Researcher series is designed to help undergraduate students become comfortable with the research skills and tools needed to participate in a variety of exciting research and creative opportunities. It is designed to bring students, especially first year and second year students, from across the University and different colleges together to learn.
