Dear Undergraduate Coordinators: 

Please let students, course instructors and TAs in your department know 
about an upcoming series of workshops on writing research papers. 
Instructional librarians and writing instructors are repeating the popular 
series "Library Research papers From Start to Finish." The five 1-hour 
sessions demonstrate ways to conduct library and online research efficiently 
and productively. The focus is mainly on students in Arts and Science. 

I have pasted in a notice that can be distributed further by email. A flyer 
is also attached for printing and display. Your department should receive a 
hard copy of the flyer in campus mail shortly. 

Thanks for your help in publicizing this offering for students. We hope it
