Attend a workshop

Brandeis Library offers free workshops for members of the Brandeis community. We currently offer GIS workshops on the following tools: ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Pro, QGIS, R and ggplot, and Social Explorer.

If you can't make it to one of our scheduled workshops, you can submit a request for an ArcGIS, Social Explorer, QGIS, or R workshop. We can tailor the workshop to your discipline(s) or teach a general workshop. We just ask that there are 3 or more people interested in attending the session.
