♦ UCLA Library’s Science and Scholarship of Learning E-book Collection

UCLA Library’s Science and Scholarship of Learning E-book collection provides easy access to key texts on learning recommended by teachers, learners, and education researchers at UCLA.

♦ UCLA Library Research Workshops

Whether your students could use guidance getting started with a research project or you want to brush up on your data visualization skills, the Library offers a variety of research workshops tailored to the needs of researchers, instructors, graduate students, upper-division undergraduates, and undergraduates new to the research process or the campus.

Faculty, graduate students, and upper-division undergraduates may be particularly interested in the advanced workshop series. The cornerstone research series, co-sponsored by the Undergraduate Research Center, is designed specifically for undergraduate students; it offers both in-person and online options. Workshops can also be scheduled upon instructor request.
