iSkills: Professional, academic, & technical workshops

iSchool professors, Inforum librarians, current students, alumni, and a collective of professionals and academics from each program and concentration, work together to create the iSkills roster of workshops, listed below. Together with the MMSt and MI curricula, they create a unique and complete information and heritage graduate educational experience. They also address academic, professional, and technical competencies aligned with your program and/or concentration(s).

A table of workshops appears at the bottom of this page.

Workshop handouts

Missed a workshop but still interested in the material? Check the table below for available handouts and presentation materials from Winter 2017 and before. Workshop materials, when available, are generally posted the week following the last session of a workshop. Materials from previous terms can be accessed by changing the year and term in the drop-down menus below.


If you are unable to attend a workshop for which you have signed up, make sure to withdraw - - at least 48 hours prior to the workshop.

Penalty ($)

Should you fail to withdraw 48+ hours in advance, thereby preventing your colleagues on the waitlist from filling in your spot, your library account will be charged $10 per missed workshop.

All questions, comments, and suggestions relating to iSkills workshops should be directed to Kathleen Scheaffer, Inforum Librarian, Outreach & Instructional Services Coordinator.
