What We Do

Our workshops help researchers and students improve the quality and efficiency of their work by teaching them how to use open-source software tools and computing resources. These workshops engage participants through a combination of theory and hands-on experience. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY and workshops are taught assuming no prior knowledge.

Workshops are scheduled regularly throughout the academic year.  A schedule of workshops for the semester can be found hereYou can also be notified of upcoming workshops by watching the OSU campus calendar, receiving email notifications (see the box on the side panel to sign up) or following @OkStateLibrary on Twitter.
