Beginning today, the Green Library Information Center is sponsoring a series of weekly Scholars' Workshops that are designed to familiarize researchers with electronic information resources available through Stanford University Libraries and Academic Information Resources (SUL/AIR).
The first workshop in the series will take place this afternoon from 4 to 5 p.m. in Green Library. Titled "Socrates for Scholars," it will provide participants with advanced techniques for using the libraries' online catalog. The topics of other workshops, which will take place at the same time every Wednesday for the remainder of Winter Quarter, range from using specific databases and products such as EndNote3, a tool for building personal bibliographic databases, to using full-text databases and online resources to conduct research on broader themes of humanities or international public policy research.
The workshops will be taught by staff from the Libraries' Information Center, the Social Sciences Resource Center, the Humanities and Area Studies Center, and Academic Computing.
The sessions are designed for faculty, graduate students and undergraduates with research interests, but are open to the entire Stanford community. No registration is required.
