At our drop-in research workshops, ZSR librarians are available to help with every aspect of your research project – from selecting a topic, to finding resources, to setting up Zotero or citing tricky sources. Delicious winter bevvies and snacks will be available to help keep you fueled!  If they can’t make any of these workshops, they can always schedule a Research Session with a ZSR librarian at a day and time that is convenient for them.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem.  The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
