S.O.S. Workshops and Webinars

Are you new to the College of DuPage Library?  Looking to sharpen your research skills?  Want an introduction to great technology tools in the Library and online?  SOS Workshops and Webinars are just what you need!

SOS Workshops are face-to-face, hands-on sessions designed to provide you with the skills you need to succeed at COD. Whether the workshop focuses on the research process or useful online tools, you can be sure that you will walk away with a tip or technique that will help you with your next paper, speech or presentation.

Our Webinar series, SOS Online, provides the COD community with convenient online learning opportunities in our Adobe Connect virtual classroom. Our interactive webinars are concise introductions to a single tool or strategy and are a great way to learn something new from wherever you are-- all you need is some free time and an internet connection!

All of our workshops and webinars will fall into one or more of these categories:


An introduction to locating and using Library and Internet resources. Research workshops are perfect for anyone who has ever spent too many hours searching for information, students looking to sharpen their research skills or anyone new to the College of DuPage Library.


Short, single-offering sessions to familiarize you with a variety of online tools, applications and services. Explore new resources that you can use to enhance projects for school, work and life. Familiarity with computers and the Internet is required for these workshops.


Workshops designed to provide you with skills and information you can use in school, work and beyond. Learn how you can use the Library to set yourself up for success.

All SOS Workshops and Webinars are free, non-credit, and open to everyone. The purpose of these sessions is to encourage and teach all members of the College of DuPage community to master the skills necessary to conduct research, explore resources and become independent lifelong learners.
