The UNL Libraries is launching a workshop series: Building Research Confidence in the Humanities

The UNL Libraries is excited to launch the workshop series Building Research Confidence in the Humanities. Covering topics ranging from finding and organizing primary materials, locating and managing scholarly sources, and analyzing resources, to making decisions about presentation and publication, this nine-session series will introduce humanities researchers to a range of tools, resources, and techniques for growing their research practice.

Workshop sessions include:
Archives & Special Collections – Discovery Tools and Tips,

Zotero for Humanities Research Materials,

Tropy: A Tool for Managing Your Research Photos,

Finding Scholarship in the Humanities, and

Getting Started with Digital Annotation

Approaches to Reading and Reviewing Scholarship in the Humanities and

Finding and Listening to Music Online

Citing Images in Presentations and Papers

Identifying Journals for Publishing

The target audience for this series is graduate students in the humanities who are starting out in advanced research or who want to level up their research skills at any time in their graduate program. Examples, tools, and points of reference will speak to research in the humanities and focus on research at the graduate level and beyond. While we want participants to be aware of this target audience to help set expectations, all UNL students, faculty, and staff are welcome.

For full workshop details, including dates, times, instructors, and more, check out With the exception of the first session, which will be held onsite in University Archives & Special Collections, all sessions will be held via Zoom. Recognizing that no single time will work for everyone, we have varied the days and times of sessions to avoid recurring conflicts. See a session that is of particular interest, but you're not able to attend? You can easily set up a one-on-one consult with any of our librarians (look for the "schedule an appointment" links).
