Fenwick Library and the SP@RC Lab are closed on November 15 because of inclement weather along with the rest of George Mason University. We advise that you subscribe to Mason Alerts for the most recent information (https://ready.gmu.edu/masonalert/)

The mission of the Scholarly Productions @ the Research Commons Lab is to provide point of need assistance for scholars in disseminating their research, regardless of format.  Our goal is to create self-sufficient scholars who are able to apply best practices in design and research presentation to their work.

For general help with a research poster or project, schedule an appointment with a staff member below. For help with a specific software, please email us at sparc@gmu.edu so we can schedule you accordingly.
