Scott Slattery and I presented our "Literature Review: Content and Process" workshop today to over 100 grad students in Nicholson. More folks had used Google Scholar, Web of Science, Interlibrary Loan, RefWorks, and Google Books than ever before. Not sure if it means anything but it was interesting....
Session overview: Participants will learn to evaluate tools for finding, organizing, and sharing research sources/content and citations.
Citation Managers: Zotero/RefWorks
Library Tools (gaining 2.0 functionality): Library Catalog (tags, reviews), My account,
Push feeds to page (e.g. Moodle, etc.)
1.) Brainstorm 3 ways you can use some of these tools in your work.
2.) Share one of these in the comments of this blog post.
Came across this video about What is it like to be student at the University of Minnesota?
The workshops are currently featured on the Libraries homepage:
Do you work with a class with high numbers of International students? Add the "Guide" to your LCP page. For example, I just added the Guide for International Students to the WRIT 1301 course (in English, Chinese, and Korean)--I am teaching one of the non-native speaker sections today and realized I should have done this a long time ago.
