Greetings, Psychology Scholars!
Do you find yourself in need of a little library research assistance, but can't seem to squeeze in another appointment?
Well, assuming many of you are nodding and saying "YES"...I thought establishing a new blog service would help you with your research endeavors. Here you will find periodic announcements, e-lessons and news about research resources and services of interest and use to you. More specifically, the intermittent series of messages posted here will provide notices of new (or overlooked) databases or resources, quick tips & instructions on their use, information on library workshops, the collections and other library services. This blog will replace most emailed updates I have sent to your listserv in the past. And, the best part is that the blog entries will be archived so that you can easily retrieve information I have previously posted---searching by category or date.
I aim to assist, not to annoy and have no plans to overload your brain. It is my hope that these messages will help you to make the most of the library's vast resources and services. More often than not, the information, descriptions and explanations will be customized to suit your needs as a graduate student or member of the faculty in the Department of Psychology. The next blog entry (Monday, Feb. 5th) will be about RefWorks---a popular citation management tool. Stay tuned!
One final note about personalized service---it is still an option. You may, at any time during the semester, send along an email or call with a question. As always, I am also available if you wish to schedule an individual research consultation. To do so please complete the following online form.
Feel free to let me know how I can best help you with your research endeavors.
