Mendeley_Logo_Verticalscopus3

Join us at the library next Thursday and Friday and learn about our two newest electronic
resources.  Scopus and Mendeley are great research tools and can assist in easing the process of finding and citing information.

On Jan. 28th at 1:30 p.m. (in the 4th floor classroom), and Jan. 29th at 10 a.m. (in the 3rd floor classroom) Scopus will be featured:

Scopus is an Abstract and Index (A&I) database of peer-reviewed literature including scientific journals, books and conference proceedings. Scopus contains interdisciplinary content that covers the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities.  Scopus also includes smart tools to aid researchers in tracking, analyzing and visualizing research.

On Jan. 28th at 10 a.m. (in the 4th floor classroom), and Jan. 29th at 1:30 pm. (in the 3rd floor classroom) Mendeley will be featured:

Mendeley is a robust reference manager and an academic social network that can be used to assist with the following tasks:

  • Automatically generate bibliographies
  • Collaborate easily with other researchers online
  • Easily import papers from other research software
  • Find relevant papers based on what you’re reading
  • Access your papers from anywhere online

We will also be holding office hours on the 4th floor in the administrative offices on both days. Should you want a one-on-one tutorial, or if the times for the demos do not fit into your schedule, just drop in during the hours of 9-10am, 11am-12 pm, or 2:30-4pm. We’ll be happy to answer your questions about these research tools!

Art Therapy and Mediation @ the Library

Hi all,

As part of Tension Prevention Week the library is offering Art Therapy and Guided Meditation this evening.

Art Therapy will be ongoing throughout the evening beginning at 5 p.m. on the first floor of the library.  There will be coloring books, crayons, markers, pencils set up.  So take a minute and head back to the good ole days when all that mattered was staying in the lines!

And then head up to the fourth floor, conference room, for our Guided Meditation with Dr. James Malley @ 6 p.m.  Meditation has proven very effective in relieving exam stress and calming the mind.  Meet us in the classroom and take advantage of all of the positive effects.

Lastly, we offer free Coffee and Cookies at 6 p.m. on the first floor of the library.  It’s first come, first served!

Access to Jstor has returned!  Thank you again for your patience!

 

Jstor is still undergoing an outage.  We recently received this message from them:

We are continuing to make progress restoring full access to JSTOR.  Users should be able to search, browse, and access most journal articles and primary sources on www.jstor.org. Access to books as well as journal content published in the most recent few years may be intermittent.  If you need help, please feel free to email us at support@jstor.org.

We will let you know when the issue is resolved and again, thank you for your patience.
