This month, Tarver Library kicks off a series of brief, interactive A-Z e-journal Locator / RefWorks Instructional Workshops. The workshops offer continuing education for those seeking to understand how to best to use the library’s online journal collection, select resources relevant to faculty research and teaching needs and manage citations efficiently.
Each workshop will consist of two 30-minute modules. Module I will focus on searching print vs. electronic journals followed by a closer look at the A-Z Journal Locator tool. To facilitate the discussion, sample searches will be performed using some major titles in related fields. Module II is designed to highlight the essential features and capabilities of RefWorks citation management software, including importing search results to create ready-to-use bibliographic citations.
Courses will be held in Tarver Library’s Chappell Classroom Nov. 3 – Dec. 3 in three sessions a week, Mondays from 3 – 4:15 p.m., Wednesdays, 2 – 3:15 p.m., and Thursday 10 – 11:15 a.m.
