Schedule an Individual Training Session or Departmental Workshop

In an effort to accommodate faculty schedules, CELTIC normally plans multiple workshop sessions around each topic. We are also happy to arrange special workshop scheduling for a department or other faculty group. In addition, we are always ready to arrange individual training or consultation on any matter related to faculty use of technology or library information sources. Please contact CELTIC to discuss how we can best address your training needs or the needs of your department or program.
