The library is currently trying out two databases. Please help us evaluate them -- your opinion matters. Tell us if either of these resources would support your learning, teaching, or research at ODU.
Sage Research Methods 03/12/2014 - 04/15/2014
... a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.
PsycTESTS 03/05/2014 - 05/29/2014
... a research database that provides access to psychological tests, measures, scales, surveys, and other assessments as well as descriptive information about the test and its development and administration.
Come to the Diehn Composers Room on Thursday, March 20, from 12:30-1:15pm, to enjoy performances by ODU’s Music Department students. “Soup to Nuts: A Musical Potluck,” the 10th Annual Student Concert, is organized by Dr. Brian Nedvin and features late 20th century and contemporary music.
The F. Ludwig Diehn Composers Room is located in the F. Ludwig Diehn Fine & Performing Arts Building at 49th & Elkhorn Avenue in Norfolk —on Old Dominion University’s main Campus. The event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Light refreshments will be offered after the concert.

Once you’ve done the research, it’s important to properly cite the information in your papers. In this workshop, we will table about ways the library databases and other resources help you create and use citations; how to tell if you might be plagiarizing; and where in the library you can go for more help.
Come to our workshop on Wednesday, March 19, from 5-6pm in LC Room 1306. Contact Rachel Lux at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Come to Room 1306 in the Learning Commons, at Perry Library on Wednesday, March 19, from 3-4pm for an EndNote workshop.
