A Semester of Learning

Thank you to all the students, faculty, and staff, who came to the library for our workshops this semester! It was a rewarding experience for us, too, and we are grateful for all 765 of you for joining us in a semester of learning & discovery!

We welcomed the term with our new instruction space, the bright and sunny Curiosity Lab. Library staff developed 29 pre-scheduled workshops for you on topics including:

  • Literature Reviews
  • Chinese Databases
  • Finding Data & Statistics
  • Stata & R
  • Business Information
  • Tableau, Gephi, & Python
  • Online Learning
  • GIS & Mapping Tools
  • Citation Tools (RefWorks Zotero, and Endnote)

In addition, we taught 39 in-class workshops by faculty request. Librarians and technologists work with courses to introduce resources, tools, and targeted strategies for course research.

The Library looks forward to Spring 2018, with more workshops. If you’d like to recommend a research topic, or if you are an instructor and would like to know more about having a research or technology workshop for your class, please email us!

 

Don’t miss out…this new magazine!

Interested in Interactive Media Arts, 3D animation, or the digital world in general?

Well, we are happy to let you know that the library now has the “3D Artist” subscription magazine that will allow you explore these topics.

And even if you are not interested in these topics, feel free to take a look. You might find yourself having a crush on the animated world.

This magazine covers topics concerning 3D texture, visual illusions, and details the techniques used to create popular animations such as Dumbledore.

Like what you hear? Then stop by and take a look. Remember that this magazine is part of our periodical collection, so it is unable to be checked out, but you are able to read this book in the library’s lovely common space.
