Research and Publishing Workshops for Graduates Students in the Humanities and Social Sciences

By Sandy Hervieux, Jessica Lange, Michael David MILLER, and Nikki Tummon

Starting one’s graduate studies can be overwhelming. To support McGill’s graduate students, McGill Library has created the workshop series Research and Publishing for Graduate Students in the Humanities and Social Sciences. This series is composed of two sessions: advanced search techniques and trends in scholarly publishing. While the workshops are complementary, it is not necessary to attend both; students can pick and choose what suits their needs best.

Discover the workshops below!

Welcome to the New Heads of HSSL

Listen to an audio recording of this post.

September 2021 has brought great change to much of the McGill campus, but here at the Humanities and Social Sciences Library we are especially excited to announce the promotion of two of our Liaison Librarians. Please join us in congratulating Dr. Svetlana Kochkina as the new Head of Lending and Access Services and Eamon Duffy as the new Head of Liaisons!
