May 2011 Archives

Our Researcher Refresh series of workshops starts today!  Here's the workshops that we'll be offering today and tomorrow.

Citation Managers.jpg

Mon, 05/23/2011 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: 310 Walter Library

This "Drop-In Clinic" is an informal session...we'll have two librarians available to answer your citation manager questions...from basic introductions, to troubleshooting, to comparisons.  No need to register, just drop by Walter 310 between 2 and 4.


Web of Knowledge.jpg

Tue, 05/24/2011 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm

21st century research is global, dynamic, and inherently interdisciplinary. Responding to these challenges, the Libraries have interdisciplinary tools such as Web of Science and Google Scholar along with the subject-specific resources. It is the research and resources on the fringe that drives innovation. Join the Libraries in learning about techniques and tools to aid you in your cross-disciplinary research.

In this workshop I'll walk you through finding an H-index using Web of Science and Google Scholar and also how to use Web of Science to determine a journal's Impact Factor.  We'll also discuss how these numbers are calculated and what they're really telling us about impact.

You can see the full roster of Researcher Refresh Workshops at libraries across campus on our website.

Increase your productivity and expand the impact of your research

Now that classes are over and grades are in, take some time to refresh your research skills. This series of workshops, offered by the University Libraries, is designed to save you time and get you up-to-speed on the latest changes in the information landscape.
For more tools and services offered by the Libraries, visit our Researcher Support Page at https://www.lib.umn.edu/researchsupport.

Creating a Data Management Plan for Your Grant Application
In January 2011, the National Science Foundation (NSF) will begin requiring a data management plan will all new grant proposals. This workshop, geared toward graduate students, faculty and researchers, will provide and overview of the questions to consider when creating a data management plan with a focus on data preservation issues and tools for sharing your data, like subject-based repositories. See the Managing your Data Web page for more resources. Satisfies RCR continuing education awareness/discussion requirements.

Thu, 05/19/2011 - 10:00am - 11:30am
This session will focus on the social sciences and humanities.

Better Data Searching
The only thing harder than finding a relevant dataset the first time is finding it again the second time. This session will demonstrate methods for getting better results in Google searches, recommend methods and tools for keeping track of what you have found and show how the Internet Archive can help you find data that seems to have disappeared. We'll also have plenty of time for discussing specific sources in the attendees research areas and any other data questions attendees may have.

Gauging Impact: How to Determine Impact Factors and What They Really Tell You
In this workshop you will learn how to compute an individual's h-index using Web of Science and Google Scholar and how to find a journal's impact factor. We will discuss how these numbers are tabulated to better understand what they really tell you about impact.

Google: Advanced Searching for Researchers
Google is a research tool! Explore the new tools and technology that pair Google-efficient tools with library-quality results to weave together a rich information web that goes beyond the World Wide Web. Learn advanced search techniques and tools such as Google Scholar, Google Books, Alerts and more that will help you access, evaluate, and share information. Note: OIT Technology Training offers more workshops on the Google Apps. suite.

Can I Use That? Fair Use in Everyday Life
Fair use is a vital part of copyright law. Quotation, criticism, review, collage, parody - all involve aspects of fair use. Participants in this workshop for faculty and instructors will develop an understanding of the complexities of fair use, and recognize situations where it might apply. We'll also look at other situations where copyright answers may be more straightforward. Participants will explore fair use concepts using examples from visual arts, music, and video, as well as academic research and writing. Expect to think hard, discuss a little, and have fun! No direct legal advice will be provided; this workshop is informational in nature. Satisfies RCR continuing education awareness/discussion requirements.

Case Studies in Publishing: Your Choices in Journal Contracts
In this workshop, participants will work through two common decision points raised by journal article contracts. Relevant context will be provided on academic publishing issues such as copyright and author's rights, cultural and economic norms, and promotion & tenure implications. Practical strategies and helpful tools will be discussed. This event has been designated by the Office of the Vice President for Research to satisfy the Awareness/Discussion component of the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) continuing education requirement.
