The University of Wyoming Librarians ROCK!

I have to put out a shout to the University of Wyoming Librarians whom I have had the pleasure to work with. Kaijsa Calkins, Cheryl Goldenstein, Melissa Bowles-Terry, and Cassandra Kvenild have always provided me with not only exceptional support in my personal research, they also provide great instruction.

Over the past couple of months, I have attended great instruction on how to better use the library resources. They have not only showed their skill with the tools, but also provided great instruction on strategies for getting the most out of the tools. So that you can benefit as much as I have, here is a list of recent recordings of their sessions:

Citation Management Tools Workshop – Learn how to use EndNote Web and Zotero to keep track of research references during a long-term project. Recording

Citation Chasing Workshop – When you find an article that meets your information need, you often want to find more like it. This workshop will give you strategies to find related items, articles by the same author, and articles that have cited the original item. Various library databases will be used, with a particular focus on Web of Science. Some hands-on searching will be done. Recording

RSS Feeds: Save Research Time Workshop – Come and learn how to set up RSS feeds and have new articles and information gathered in one place for greater research convenience. Recording

Writing a Review of the Literature – Melissa Bowles-Terry, a reference librarian, will lead participants through the process of collecting resources for a review of literature, and Margaret Garner, director of the writing center, will help participants learn how to put the material together for an effective review. Some hands-on work will be done. Recording

The University of Wyoming is lucking to have professionals like these librarians.
