The Library Micro-Courses are very brief online workshops designed to help you learn about the Library and research topics in bite-sized amounts and at your own pace.
You only need to follow all of these steps the first time.
The Library Micro-Courses will now appear on your Canvas dashboard alongside the square tiles for all your other classes. You can open it at any time to take another course. More courses are being developed so keep checking back!
Caution: Please do not drop the Library Micro-Courses (which will remove them from your Canvas dashboard) until after you have received your extra credit. Dropping the course erases all of your activity, which we need to see in order to let your instructor know you earned the extra credit.
