Are you working on a large writing project? Scrivener can help! Scrivener is a software program that breaks down your writing into manageable “chunks” and brings your research and writing together into a single conceptual work space. You will learn how to create a new writing project in Scrivener, import existing work, and how to outline, research, and write with Scrivener’s unique features. A limited number of free licenses can be obtained by thesis students who participate in the Middlebury pilot. Instructor: Stacy Reardon. To sign up, visit go.middlebury.edu/scrivenerworkshop.

The wealth of data provided includes names and synonyms, formulae, chemical structures, CAS Registry Numbers, extensive source data, uses and applications, physical state, melting point, boiling point, pKa, and key literature citations. In addition a comprehensive type of compound classification scheme brings together compounds that are biogenetically related.

BrowZine is an application that allows you to browse, read and follow thousands of the library’s subscribed scholarly journals from your Android and iOS mobile devices, all in a format optimized for your tablet or smartphone! (and coming soon – available on the web!) if we subscribe to a journal, you can browse the journal and read and/or download the articles during this trial. We think the ability to BROWSE current online journals in your field – reminiscent of the time you might walk down the aisle of current print journals in the library – is the real value of this service.
And there’s more than browsing – built to accompany your searching needs, items found in BrowZine can easily be synced up with Zotero, Mendeley, RefWorks, Dropbox or other services to help keep all of your information together in one place.
