The James & Abigail Campbell Library offers UH West Oʻahu students a series of synchronous Zoom workshops to help with various aspects of research, including two recently added workshops on how to find census data and Google smarter.

The brief, one-hour online workshops are designed to assist students in best utilizing the library’s resources and services, and equip students with important life skills. Q&As are accepted throughout the entire session, so seeing the questions other learners have will also be useful for attendees.

Each workshop is offered 6 to 7 p.m. on two days:

  • Fake News and Misinformation: Oct. 13 or 14
  • Finding Census Data: Oct. 20 or 21
  • Protecting Your Digital Identity: Oct. 27 or 28
  • Google Smarter, Not Harder: Nov. 4 or Nov. 5

At the end of each workshop, attendees will be required to do a short exit survey and their contact information will be collected on that form. They will then be emailed a confirmation acknowledging their attendance, which they can forward to faculty who may be offering them extra credit. (Workshop organizers ask faculty members to consider encouraging their students to attend one or more of the workshops.)

Students can register for the workshops here.
