Online Library Workshops

Online library workshops cover a range of useful research topics, and are offered online via Canvas. Some City College of San Francisco instructors assign library workshops, but students are encouraged to take them independently as well.

Citing Information Sources

Citing information sources using a standardized citation format, such as MLA or APA, is required for responsibly using information. Visit the Citing Sources for more information about citations.
