Workshops About Using Cross Discipline Research Tools

Come learn about comprehensive searching of multiple databases in related disciplines to uncover articles, books and reports critical to your research. The workshop will cover earch examples using ISI Web of Science and the new Stanford Libraries’ Cross Search tool. E-mail alerts for subject, titles, and authors will also be covered.

See the Engineering Libraries' site for more information about these October workshops.

Refworks in three steps

Stanford has a site license for the Web-based bibliographic/citation tool called Refworks (see here for tutorials and more information on how to set up and use Refworks @ Stanford).

The paper below by a group of librarians at University of Queensland describes an interesting way in which students can use Refworks in their team-based research projects. Check it out.
