Learning to do library and web-based information research is an important part of information competency. To support this, CCSF Library provides a suite of library skills workshops.
Click on the Start Workshop button below to begin. Log in with an active RAM ID and password. After logging in, enroll in the Library Skills Workshops course for the current semester by clicking on the Enroll in Course link. This is not a credit course, but students must be enrolled in order to access the workshops in Canvas.
MLA and APA Research Challenger workshops will close on Tuesday, May 7 at 7pm. The other library workshops will close on Tuesday, May 14 at 7pm.
Find library workshops in Canvas. To begin the workshops for the first time:
At the end of each workshop, learners earn a badge that is labeled with their CCSF email address and workshop title. Your CCSF Canvas account contains all completed online workshop badges from the current semester. Click on “Badges” link in course navigation bar on the left. You can also see the workshops you've completed in your Grades page in the Library Research Skills course. Take screenshots of your badge(s) or your Grades page to email to your instructor. Or, ask a librarian to give you a completion slip you can email.
With the exception of Research Challenger, library workshops are based on information competency concepts and can be taken in any order. However, the Library recommends taking them in the following order:
Library workshops have been updated. Old versions had letters in their names (e.g. “Workshop A”). If you received old information, ask your instructor to contact us. We will be happy to provide them with current information about Library workshops.
No, all workshops must be completed online in Canvas. If you need help with a workshop, contact us or visit any CCSF Library reference desk.
Completion slips for workshops from past semesters can be issued by a CCSF reference librarian for up to one year from completion. Contact a librarian to request one and we will email it to you.
Those workshops were phased out over one year ago, and the grades are no longer valid.
Research Challenger workshops are graded online by a librarian within one week of submission. If revisions are needed, the grading librarian will contact you through Canvas to correct and resubmit the assignment. Students who need their grade more immediately may come to a library reference desk to get their assignment graded in person, but should be aware that this process may take some time if corrections are needed or if the library is busy at that time.
