STEP Workshops from University Libraries

We are building workshops specifically for students in STEP. They will be available either for faculty cohort groups or as co-curricular workshops. These were designed with the STEP learning outcomes of access, community and self-awareness in mind.

FACULTY: Contact Beth Black,, 8-5428, to schedule one of these workshops for your cohort.

STUDENTS: Register for a co-curricular offering here.

  • Seeking Multiple Stories: Information Skills for Global Citizenship
    This workshop introduces techniques for recognizing how information is framed and packaged by individuals and organizations as it flows globally as well as the associated ethical and equity issues. Twitter and other “non-traditional” news sources will be explored.
  • Join the Research Conversation.
    Active research is happening across the university and researchers regularly debate and inspire one another through their writings. Find out how to "hear" this conversation and how to join in - right here at Ohio State - in this interactive session from University Libraries and the Undergraduate Research Office.
  • Students as Creators/Consumers: Share your ideas, Know your rights
    We constantly create and consume copyrighted works in the course of our academic pursuits and daily lives. Digital publishing and self-publishing online (such as blogs and Twitter) have increased the availability of copyrighted works as well as our ability to share our own creations. Participants in this session will learn about their rights and responsibilities as an author and a user of copyrighted materials and will also explore several options for sharing their STEP experiences
  • Discovering Hidden Resources for Research: Special Collections at OSU
    University Libraries Special Collections are treasure troves of unique research topics and resources for undergraduate students. Don't miss the chance to meet with and explore the resources from several distinct collections. Whether you are interested in additional resources for your current research project, starting your own project using these rare and special resources, or just interested in what these collections hold, this event is for you!

Interested in arranging one of these workshops for your cohort or in utilizing one of the resources shared today? Contact Beth Black, Undergraduate Engagement Librarian,, 8-5428.
