Spark Seminar: Archaeology in Popular Culture

Pre Library Session Instructions

Hello Archaeology in Popular Culture Students! 

I'm Elizabeth Salmon, Research Services Librarian here at UC Merced. I'm going to join your class on February 3 and March 10 for library workshops on finding and using library resources and then, brainstorming and refining your research topic. 

Before our first workshop on February 3rd:

  1. watch the 3 videos below.
  2. set up the VPN (if you haven't already.)
  3. confirm that you can connect to the campus network through the VPN. 

Hope everyone's semester is off to a great start! Looking forward to meeting you, Elizabeth
