Mr. Mumtaz (Assistant Librarian) conducted the workshop in a smoothly synchronized collaboration to practically demonstrate the contents and usage procedure for searching for research papers. Meanwhile, students explored the IEEE Xplore Digital Library website, created an account and got the experience of searching of research papers related to academics and interests and guided the participants how to register and solve the IEEE Xplore Digital Library Challenge quiz. For registration, the participants were guided to log in on www.ieee-eplore-challange.org/pakistan and were given the tips to make corrects answers tick marks.
