IAP By the Numbers

MIT’s Independent Activities Period (IAP) is a four-week period in January during which faculty and students are freed from the rigors of regularly scheduled classes for flexible teaching and learning and for independent study and research. The MIT Libraries offer a range of workshops each IAP, with topics ranging from tips for thesis authors to research computing skills to environmental justice through data.
