Last week, University of Houston Libraries held a series of online open forums about library services geared toward graduate students. Librarians explained how these services are related to graduate study, research, and teaching, and how librarians work with graduate students.
The series was recorded and each session is accessible below via Microsoft Stream:

Subject librarians offer research consultations when you need help finding data or resources, provide library information sessions to courses that you teach or attend, and connect you to library services and programs that you need for your success at UH. Join this session to learn how UH subject librarians help graduate students succeed.
