The Doherty Library offers workshops to the University of St. Thomas community to improve the skill-sets of our patrons and demonstrate the resources available at the Doherty library. The workshops are conducted in the basement area of the library, in room 008, and they count towards workshop credit that some classes require. If any of the workshops sound interesting and useful, but the dates do not work for your schedule, the Doherty librarians are always available to answer questions about library resources and improving a student’s skill-set.
