Web of Knowledge Training sessions

Forward from the Illinois Natural History Survey Library:

On Tuesday, March 11th, a Web of Knowledge training instructor from Thomson Scientific will offer hands on training for Web of Knowledge special features, and the Science Citation Index and Zoological Record databases.

Web of Knowledge The Web of Knowledge has recently released a newly designed interface with powerful new search features. A Web of Knowledge training instructor will review specific aspects and services offered to searchers such as creating alerts and RSS feeds, and researcher ID’s. This session is geared for Librarians and GSLIS students and will start at 1:00 PM.
The Science Citation Index is a multidisciplinary index to the journal literature of the sciences, indexing over 6650 major journals. A cited reference searching enables you to find articles that cite a previously published work. This session will be at 2:00 PM.
Zoological Record is the world’s leading taxonomic reference database indexing over 5000 journals plus monographs and conference proceedings. It is the unofficial registry of animal names and it covers the years 1864 to the present. There will be a general review of the database with an emphasis on locating records of new species. This session will be at 3:00 PM.
These will be held in the ACES Library (1101 S. Goodwin) in the 5th floor computer training lab, room 509. The search interface for these two article databases has recently been redesigned so you can learn about some new and exciting features. Also, fyi, Zoological Record is now available online from 1864 (volume one) to the present.
