SP@RC Your Research!

Scholarly Productions @ the Research Commons (SP@RC) Lab provides point of need assistance for scholars in disseminating their research, regardless of format.  Through workshops and appointments, SP@RC’s goal is to create self-sufficient scholars – able to apply best practices in design and research presentation to their work. Come learn – and do – with us!
