Catching up at the Beginning of the Semester, and in with the new............

So the semester began officially last week, and we are welcoming the students back to campus. We have a new roster of workshops and Refworks sessions, as well as Library Orientations.

On another note, yours truly (Lorin Fisher) am now Information Literacy Coordinator, so expect to hear more about our program and Information Literacy in general.

RSS and Refworks and Research

Did you know you can use Refworks as a feed reader? This nifty webpage from the Refworks folks explains it all. But this is really a wonderful development--now you can set up database feeds
for your searches from the databases and then use Refworks' RSS feature to import citations from those feeds.

Summer fun! and gearing up for the Semester

Summer II semester is winding down, and although we've been a bit more silent on the blog, we've been busily working towards the fall semester. The library is a part of the freshman orientation known as Paws Preview, which is coming up next week. Check out our new updated orientation video here. Also, watch for our updated orientation schedules and workshops coming soon.
