Drop-in seminars on Database Searching and RefWorks

Next week, I will hold two open, drop-in seminars on library resources

  • Database Searching – Wednesday, November 15, 11:00-12:00, LAC 1173
    Learn to select and access the best databases for your subject, search their content and find full-text articles
  • RefWorks – Thursday, November 16, 4:00-5:00, LAC 1170A
    Learn how to use this citation management system that makes building bibliographies a flash.

These seminars all open to all; no registration required.

    I live in Orlando and am a graduate student in Library Science–could really use this information but have never been on the Lakeland Campus —and it would take me about an hour to get there–should I do this? Or is there some option that makes better sense…let me know.

    Anita,

    Was there one of the classes of particular interest to you?
    RefWorks does have a good, although basic, tutorials that are available at http://www.lib.usf.edu/ref/ifrank/guides/refworks.html and in the Help menu of the software itself (you need to have an account created). The Tampa Library also holds RefWorks classes periodically, see http://www.lib.usf.edu/forms/refworks-training.html.

    It’s harder to show online how to do searches, hence the face to face class. You could set an appointment with me at a time that would be more convenient for you (maybe on your way to Tampa?) You can also set up an appointment with a Tampa Library librarian, try http://www.lib.usf.edu/services/request_services.html.

    The database searching and the RefWorks classes will be repeated at a later date as well.
