Orientation Week Events

The Library is involved in several events during Orientation Week and we’d like you to know about them!

Google for Scholarly Research
Presented by Martha Stephenson, Reference & Instruction Librarian
27 August 2009 (Thursday) — 9-10 AM — UC 261
Google is ubiquitous, yet constantly evolving. Advances and improvements in Google products offer opportunities to more effectively and efficiently find information on the internet. This Googleology workshop features Google Scholar, Books, and Reader, which offer vital contributions to scholarship. By participating in this workshop, you’ll learn to:

  • Personalize Google Scholar to hybridize Andersen Library resources and the free internet:
    → Search with Google simplicity and find quality articles and books available through the Andersen Library
    → Interlibrary Loan materials not available in our library system
  • Use Google Books to find relevant books, book chapters and quotes.
  • Use Google Reader to aggregate pertinent RSS feeds.

Library Services & Online Resources
27 August 2009 (Thursday) — 2:30-3:30 PM — Andersen Library 2211 (BI Lab)
We’ll provide an introduction and overview of library services & online resources for new faculty and instructional academic staff (if you need a refresher, that’s OK too!). You’ll also get a chance to meet the library director and your librarian liaison. There will be refreshments served and the first fifteen attendees will receive a FREE t-shirt!

About kyle

I'm the library guy. No, seriously, I'm the only male reference & instruction librarian. I also have the pleasure of serving several campus committees, the Academic Staff Assembly and the Chancellor's Task Force on LGBT Issues, among others.
