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!
