Academic Support Series

The Academic Support Series is a set of workshops designed to supplement MLIS students' academic study in practical ways and provide a space outside the classroom for students to collect research advice and real-world tips about libraries. It introduces the many resources and services available to MLIS students through the Dal Libraries.
