Join the UW Libraries this summer for the fifth annual Graduate Student Research Institute (GSRI)!

The Graduate Student Research Institute (GSRI) is a free and asynchronous multi-day online workshop giving new and returning UW graduate students the tools and strategies they need to research smarter, not harder.
The bulk of the content will be in Canvas, and participants can choose to engage in Slack, with customized support from UW librarians and other qualified experts in their subject areas. GSRI can help you to:

  • Learn skills and strategies for effective academic research
  • Become familiar with core tools and resources for research productivity
  • Connect with relevant support units across the UW campuses
  • Build community with other UW students and campus support staff

There are two online, asynchronous sessions of GSRI being offered in Summer 2020:

Session #2: September 13 – September 17, 2021(Registration closes September 6)

Participation FAQs:

  • GSRI learning takes place over 5 days with no fixed participation times (asynchronous).
  • GSRI requires daily engagement in the form of small activities and Slack discussions. We recommend you reserve one hour per day to complete the GSRI curriculum.
  • GSRI is a free, online, not-for-credit experience. All UW graduate students are welcome.
