NOTE TO STUDENTS!

  • Please be sure that you are signing up for the correct webinar! Your instructor may have directed you to this page to sign-up only for a particular date or topic, please pay attention to your instructor's wishes if this is the case. For example, an instructor may offer extra credit or assignment points for attending an MLA Style Format webinar (but NOT an APA one!) because MLA is the style used in her course assignments.

  • Grades or points awarded are solely at the discretion of HCCS course instructors and not by the HCCS librarians/webinar facilitators.  
  • We cannot report successful attendance in the case of any technical difficulties you might have had that prevented your attendance.
