1. 45,000 Titles with Safari Books Online
The library is pleased to announce that Safari Books Online now offers more than 45,000 titles and unlimited simultaneous users. Previously there were only 3,000 e-books for access by only two users at a time. Safari Books Online provides full-text access to creative and business e-books and videos from leading publishers such as O’Reilly, Pearson, Wiley, Packt, Harvard Business Review, and others. Topics include desktop and web applications, software development, network administration, artificial intelligence, operations, data, UX design, finance, leadership, and more. You can access Safari Books Online through the Library’s index and databases page.

2. Citation Manager Workshops
Note to RefWorks users: RefWorks will be phased out by the end of the academic year. These workshops may help you choose a new citation manager and learn how to import your RefWorks record to a new platform.

Large research projects, especially theses and dissertations, involve extensive use of a variety of publications. It’s difficult to locate and organize these materials and their citations and to represent these references in the required format. Citation managers can be a big help on this side of the research process.

This semester, Fogler Library will host both general citation management workshops and workshops focused on specific citation managers. If you plan to attend the general workshops and/or specific citation manager workshops, please RSVP online. The dates and times are:

  • Citation Manager Workshop, Wednesday 1/30, 4-6pm
  • Citation Manager Workshop, Tuesday 2/5, 6-8pm
  • Zotero Workshop, Tuesday 2/19, 4-6pm
  • Mendeley Workshop, Monday 2/25, 4-6pm
  • EndNote Basic Workshop, Wednesday 2/27, 4-6pm
