Good Librations is a series hosted by the library for UWG faculty and staff. Topics will vary but the consistent goal is for the UWG community to come together socially to learn about and discuss helpful resources. These will be held on Fridays 3pm-5pm (ish) in the Aquarium on the 3rd floor of Ingram Library. Refreshments will be served.
October 26 -- Web of Knowledge, Ulrich's and Open Access
Come learn how to do a cited reference search to see who is citing whom (and who is citing you!). See how you can search for funding agencies who fund research similar to yours. Learn how to evaluate the potential impact of a journal before you submit to publish there. And, since this is during Open Access Week, come find out what that even means!
November 9 -- Don't Shoot Me: Taking the Bullets Out of PowerPoint
Have you ever been to a conference and cringed at a horrible Powerpoint presentations? Have you ever been worried that maybe your slides are cringe-worthy? Come learn how to create effective slides that will engage your audience and not make them wince.
January 11 -- Endnote Web
We'll show you how to use Endnote Web to keep track of the references you are using. Endnote Web works with Microsoft Word to create citations for you while you are writing. And then, when the first journal to which you submit foolishly rejects your article, you can make Endnote Web's Cite While You Write feature automatically change all your footnotes and references to a different citation style so you don't have to!
February 22 -- Finding Grants
Someone from the Office of Research will come and show how to find grants and funding agencies.
No workshop in March due to Spring Break (with Spring Break and Faculty Senate, we run out of Fridays).
April 5 -- It's All About You: A Celebration of Faculty Research
