Registration is now open for the Library’s fall workshops. This term the Library is offering 19 workshops on topics as diverse as patent searching, mapping with open source GIS software, and RefWorks.
Workshops of particular interest to faculty and graduate students include:
New Faculty and Grad Students: Research Tools and Library Services
This session provides you with an overview of the Library’s resources, locations, and services available to you as a faculty member or graduate student. It includes searching for books, browsing e-journals, selecting and using subject-specific and multidisciplinary databases, accessing articles using Get It @ Waterloo, and discovering who your liaison librarian is and how s/he can help you with your research.
Keep Current in Your Field
Learn how to automate your searches for new and relevant research by having search results and journal table of contents sent to you on a regular basis. Find out about the alerting services available in Web of Science and CSA databases, RSS feeds, and the Library’s search tool, Primo.
Have you invented something? Do you need to know what technology a company has invented? Find out what patents are about, what a search can do for you, and how to do your own search. Not for the faint of heart; some searching experience will help.
