Project Sandbox: Library Technology Workshops & Presentations: Fall 2019

PROJECT SANDBOX: Socializing - Innovating - Collaborating

Project Sandbox is an ongoing examination into the enhancement of student learning through providing tools, space, collaborative opportunities and education. The intent of this project is to come away with answers for users’ needs/wants and how to establish a space that is given value through the input of the people that use it.

Throughout the semester you can attend the Project Sandbox workshops and presentations to gain greater awareness of technologies available in the Library and how to use them.

All presentations and workshops are located in The Alcove (Library Level 10; across from the Library Services Desk).
