LIS Workshops – August

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Don’t miss out!  There is still time to fit in some learning before fall semester leaps out from behind the nearest patch of sunflowers…  Visit go/lisworkshops to view our schedule and get signed up for topics of interest. You’ll find Drupal sessions to help you get your departmental web site up to snuff before the next batch of students arrives on campus.  You’ll also find another opportunity to find out about lynda.com and how you can start using it to improve your skills.

Liaison Discussion: Zotero

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Topic: Led by Daisy Benson, Reference and Instruction Librarian and Library Assistant Professor, UVM
Who’s Invited: All liaisons and anyone else who is interested
When: Tuesday, July 17, from 11:15-12:30
Where: LIB 105, Davis Family Library

We’ve been receiving more requests for help with alternative bibliographic management software. UVM has been supporting Zotero for a few years now, so I’ve invited librarian Daisy Benson to visit for a Zotero demo and discussion. We can talk about other tools too (Noodlebib and Easybib have been mentioned in recent years), and consider investigating them later.

Sorry to spill over into the lunch hour. The room is being used until 11, and since Daisy is coming all the way from Burlington I thought we should block off more than just 60 minutes. You may leave whenever you need to!

******************
“Liaison Discussion Section” meetings address research and/or technology topics of interest to liaisons. They can be conversations, or presentations, or both. They take place most often on the 3rd week of the month, but in order to allow people who work different hours to attend, they’re sometimes scheduled for different days/times.
