About the program
Each January, Harvard Library offers Unabridged, a multi-day library master class for GSAS and DCE graduate students. In this intensive program, participants can expect to learn strategies and frameworks that they will continue to use throughout their careers.
Designed to lay the groundwork for a lifetime of scholarly practice, Unabridged helps you become more effective, resourceful, and creative.
A host of experts from across the University teach sessions in a variety of formats, offering a multi-disciplinary perspective on research practices.
Unabridged focuses on concepts as much as currently relevant tools and encourages you to learn through hands-on activities. Our holistic approach helps you develop strategies that are adaptable and enduring.
You'll learn how to:
- Navigate complex research environments
- Organize your research in intellectually productive ways
- Optimize your search strategies
- Manage your scholarly persona
- Negotiate with publishers
Apply for January 2021
The Unabridged 2021 Program will meet online, Tuesdays through Thursdays, over two weeks: January 12-14 and January 19-21, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm (Eastern Time). Unabridged is offered as part of January@GSAS.
Who should apply?
Unabridged is primarily for graduate degree candidates in FAS (GSAS or Harvard Extension School), including those in PhD programs offered jointly between GSAS and one of the professional schools.
All other applicants—including visiting scholars, special students, post-docs, FAS staff, and Harvard students from outside FAS—will be placed on a waiting list and notified close to the workshop date if a spot has opened up.
Priority is given to applications received by October 31st, but applications are accepted on a rolling basis if there is room on the wait list.
