Abstract

Although graduate students are interested in learning data, grant, literature research, presentation, scholarly communication, and writing and publishing skills–topics not typically taught within their curriculum–scheduling conflicts during the academic year often prevent them from attending workshops that teach these skills. This article describes a grant-funded initiative where multiple campus units collaborated to provide themed boot camps outside of the fall and spring semesters. It also offers recommendations for adapting such a program at other institutions for lower cost, which administrators and practitioners in higher education, especially in academic libraries, may be particularly interested in.
