Marilia Yesenia Antunez and Tammy A. Stitz presented in August 2020 at a virtual joint conference:
The presentation examined the planning process of a series of workshops supporting honors students in creating their theses. The process was informed by lessons learned from previous workshops. The formation of the series was a partnership of librarians and the honors college to deliver 12 one-hour workshops.
Nice teamwork, Marilia and Tammy!
