The Savvy Researcher: Boot Camp for STEM Researchers
Join University Libraries for a half-day workshop for graduate students and other advanced researchers in FSU's STEM fields. Please bring a laptop to participate.
Search like a Boss (10am-11am)
Explore library databases and other search tools to conduct effective research in STEM Disciplines. Highlighted tools will include Web of Science, SciFinder, and others. Advanced searching strategies, analyzing search results, and citation mapping are some of the topics explored in this workshop.
Tools for Collaborative Research Management (11:15am-12pm)
With constantly growing folders of PDF files and lists of web links, it can be extremely difficult for researchers to keep track of all their references and citations. Explore research information management tools and strategies provided by FSU Libraries, such as Mendeley, Zotero, and Endnote. Attendees will receive a brief overview of features for the various tools available, as well as practical advice for their own research management needs.
Staying Ahead of the Scholarly Research Curve (12:30pm-1:15pm)
In an age of accelerated scientific discovery and dissemination, information outside of traditional peer reviewed journals can be difficult to navigate and evaluate. This workshop explores sources for scientific publications and research data including preprints, research data repositories, patents, and technical literature.
Primary Source Searching with Special Collections (1:30pm-2:30pm)
FSU Libraries Special Collections and Archives faculty will offer expert guidance in using special collections materials at Florida State University and elsewhere. Learn how to locate and evaluate rare books and archival collections relevant to your research, how to request and access materials remotely, how to plan a visit to a repository, and what to expect when you get there.
