The University Libraries is subscribing to BrowZine. It’s an app for IPad or Android-based tablets that enables faculty, staff and students to browse, read and monitor many of the University Libraries’ scholarly journals. Download BrowZine here.
Come to a library workshop this week. Three workshops are scheduled:
The Web; Can It Be Trusted? It may seem like the information available on the Web is infinite. But how do we know which information can be relied on for course assignments or personal use? In this workshop, we’ll discuss tips and tricks for sifting through the online noise to find credible internet sources. Contact Rachel Lux at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Monday, February 3, 5-6pm (LC1306)
Psychology Resources via Adobe Connect. Distance and on-campus students are welcome to attend (virtually!). You will learn about the most important psychology resources and research tips, with a special focus on off campus access. Pre-registration is required. Please email Nancy Schafer email@example.com to register and receive the link to the workshop. Tuesday, February 4, 6-7:30pm
Ebsco Discovery Service. So you’ve got a research project but you don’t know where to start? A good place to start is the EBSCO Discovery Tool on the library homepage. You can use it to find books (both print and digital) and other materials (maps, news, magazine articles, audio and video, etc.,) owned by the ODU Libraries, including articles from many of our databases. This workshop will teach you how to run an effective search, limit your results, and access the resources. Contact Megan Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Thursday, February 6, 12:30-1:30pm (LC1306)
