In Case You Missed It...

University of Houston Libraries held a series of online open forums this summer about library services geared toward graduate students.

  • Accessing Library Materials and Services
  • How a Librarian Can Help You
  • Teaching Support for Graduate Instructors and TAs
  • Learning About Digital Research at UH
  • Data Services
