Research Palooza is Coming!

Save the Date: Schmid Law Library will offer the 3rd Annual Research Palooza on Thursday May 8, 2014.

This one-day research skills event is designed to prepare you for real-world summer clerking and research. Please watch for information and a survey about the topics that you want us to cover.

In the meantime, please send suggestions to any librarian…. To review what we offered during the 2nd Annual Research Palooza, see last year’s ResearchPalooza 2013 LibGuide.
