Every July, the Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS) offers a weeklong workshop on Information Fluency in Classical Studies to undergraduates. The program aims to help students become more familiar with the sources of information for the study of classics, develop their ability to access, evaluate, and manage resources in a variety of formats, and better understand the broader landscape of scholarly communication and how it is currently evolving.
As a final project, the workshop participants develop an outline for a resource guide in classical studies for use at their own institutions and write one piece of content. The students then contribute their content — usually a guide to a particular subtopic in the field or to a key resource or research process — to Resource Guides for Studying Classics, a website maintained by the CHS.
View the full list of contributors to Resource Guides for Studying Classics here. In the two years that the CHS has offered the workshop, 22 undergraduates from 18 institutions have participated.
