Space shuttle blasting off

Your skills can blast off at the Library this year. Library experts will teach dozens of workshops on research skills, digital scholarship, maker skills, career development, and more this semester. These courses—free and open to all Georgetown students, faculty, and staff—will help you write better papers, create eye-catching charts and graphics, plan and produce exciting videos, and get the most out of your time on the Hilltop.
