Have lunch on us!

Well actually not really. Just wanted to get your attention. But we do have something for you that you can do during your lunch hour  – come to our workshops (aka Library Lunchables).

Join us for an hour in the Library Archives Room one day each week. The Whittemore Library will host a series of informal training sessions covering its electronic resources. The schedule for February is:

Wednesday, Feb. 20: Collecting and tagging your favorite websites using Del.icio.us
Del.icio.us is a social bookmarking site for storing, sharing, tagging, and discovering websites. The reference department has compiled within Del.icio.us, a list of reputable websites that are organized by subject area. The session will cover how the reference department organized its bookmarks using Del.icio.us and how you can organize your own bookmarks within Del.icio.us.

Wednesday, Feb. 27: Citing Sources: Getting Started w/ RefWorks
RefWorks is a web-based citation management service. You can access RefWorks from any computer with internet access (on and off campus); create a personal database online; import references from multiple databases; organize and manage references; share references; and format bibliographies and manuscripts. The session will show you the basics of creating an account, exporting citations into the RefWorks database, and creating a bibliography.
