Interested in 3D printing but don’t know where to start?  Have an idea for printing but aren’t sure what software to use or where to go for help?  Please join us for this workshop on beginning 3D printing at the Miami Libraries.

This workshop is designed to walk you through the steps of 3D printing, from designing your project and making decisions on the structural components to submitting your project to print at one of the library’s 3D printing locations.

This workshop will benefit you if:

  • You are interested in learning more about 3D printing
  • You have an idea for a print and aren’t sure where to start
  • You have a file to print and want assistance getting it started

We are here to help! Library technicians that run the library’s 3D printers will present an hour-long workshop on the basics of 3D printing.

Know Your News: Locating Reliable Reporting in the Age of Social Media

Are you unsure if the news you’re reading on social media is real or fake? Do you wonder where to turn for reliable reporting? If that sounds like you, please join us for the Learning Center workshop "Know Your News."

This workshop has been designed to provide you with resources and strategies for locating and evaluating news sources while attending Miami University.

The workshop will benefit you if:

We can help! A librarian specializing in journalism and mass communication will present an hour-long workshop to help you combat the fake news phenomenon by learning to locate reliable reporting.

Poster Presentation and Design

Are you creating a poster for the Undergraduate Research Forum, a conference or a class, but unsure how to get started? Do you wonder what an academic poster is supposed to look like? Nervous about presenting your research? If that sounds like you, please join us for the Learning Center workshop "Poster Presentation and Design.”
