Library Workshops & Credit Courses

This guide will provide information about the library workshops, library credit courses, and other instructional services.

Library Workshops (Fully Online in Canvas)

Special notice: Until the campus re-opens, all library workshops are offered online only. Read below to learn more. 

Online Library Workshops in Canvas

The library's online workshops are delivered in Canvas, not with Zoom. Each workshop is open for one week (7 days) in Canvas, and its activities may be completed at your own pace. The activities will take about 1 hour to complete, and must be finished within one week of the start date.

How to Sign Up for Canvas Online Library Workshops

  • Log in to MyGCC > Other Services > Workshops > Library Workshops. Register for the workshop you'd like to take, understanding that the workshop starts on the displayed date and ends one week later.
  • Students who enroll by the posted deadline in the schedule (1pm PST on Monday or Wednesday) will receive a message by the workshop start time via GCC email that invites you to join the Canvas workshop.
  • The workshop will close 7 days after it begins, at midnight; all work must be completed by then to gain completion credit.

How to Successfully Complete Online Library Workshops

  • You are given one week to work asynchronously at your own pace on the one hour workshop content.
  • Please read the instructions carefully before you begin each online activity.
  • An instructor will actively monitor your work and progress, so please be thorough.  
  • Some activities/quizzes may need to be graded manually; an instructor will respond in timely fashion.
  • You must finish all workshop content before the end of the week you are enrolled in to complete the workshop.
  • Student attendance for online workshops is recorded in your instructor’s roster, same as traditional workshops.

Workshop Enrollment

  • To enroll in library workshops log in to MyGCC > Other Services > Workshops > Library Workshops
  • As you enroll, be sure to make a note of which workshops you enroll in or print your enrollment report.
  • In consideration of fellow students, PLEASE return to your registration record and delete your registration for any workshops that you find you cannot attend.
  • Most "wait-listed" students do get into the workshops they sign up for.
  • Drop-ins for in-person workshops are allowed only if the workshop is not already full, so it's best to sign up in advance.
  • Be sure to arrive early or on time for in-person workshops -- no one will be admitted to workshops once the workshop has begun.
  • Please know your student ID number.

Reporting Workshop Attendance

  • For in-person workshops, it is very important for you to sign the roster in each workshop you attend.
  • Your attendance will be reported to your instructor's online class roster automatically upon the completion of the workshop and verification of your signature on the workshop roster.
  • We no longer provide printed verification forms to take to your instructor.
  • Please ask your class instructor to check her/his own online roster for verification of your workshop attendance; they can learn more about doing so at this link.
