Grad students--ride that energy wave of first week good intentions this Friday, August 28th, by attending Grad Student Library Day. Library Day is your opportunity to learn all about finding full text dissertations, storing and citing sources with RefWorks, or finding and using images, sound, and film for your research--or for your classes if you are teaching. But wait, there's more: business, legal, or congressional research, Google, Interlibrary Loan and Get It, plus a Hale tour and overview of very handy tools.
Library Day is designed like a conference with 50-minute concurrent sessions. To relieve any scheduling conflicts for you, we're repeating the morning sessions in the afternoon. Come for one session, two sessions, or stay for the whole day.Since your research pulls from many fields, we've developed sessions that feature multi-disciplinary resources and methods.
We held a Faculty Library Day before the semester started and I made a promise to them that I will also make to grad students. I will guarantee that any session you attend will provide you with one tool, trick, or resource that will save you hours (at least) in the future. If it doesn't, contact me and I will treat you to your non-alcoholic beverage of choice (skearns @ ksu.edu).
If you can't make this Friday, we have a joint Faculty/Grad Library Day scheduled for Monday, October 5th--the student holiday. See the schedule and sign up for this Friday or October 5th. Hope to see you there!
