Keeping up with librarians and current awareness tools
Did you know…that some of our Subject Specialist Librarians have office hours in classroom buildings? Keep an eye out for Jocelyn Poole, Lisa Smith, or Rebecca Ziegler, who make regular visits to assist some of you on-site. If you’d like to find a Subject Specialist Librarian for a certain subject in a certain location outside the library, please leave a comment here to let us know, or e-mail Jonathan Harwell, Coordinator of Content Management, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Did you know…that you can create free personalized accounts with many of our databases, such as the ones from EBSCOhost? You can save searches as well as folders of citations, and you can also create search alerts via e-mail or RSS (for blog reader software such as Google Reader).
Did you know…that you can create search alerts for any RSS-enabled websites, including some e-journals, so that you know when new items are published in your areas of interest? It’s free and easy with Google Reader.
Did you know…that you can use ticTOCs, a journal table of contents service available for free, to create search alerts for a wide variety of journals from 739 publishers?
Did you know…that some of our Subject Specialist Librarians are blogging for you? If you’re interested in education, sociology, anthropology, women’s & gender studies, or music, for example, check out the links in this sentence! (You might also see your Subject Specialist Librarian on Facebook!)
Did you know…that you can choose to receive e-mailed, personalized lists of new books being published in specific subject areas? Faculty often use these lists to recommend purchases for the library. Just contact Jonathan Harwell, Coordinator of Content Management, at email@example.com
Did you know…that Henderson Library would love to feature your own publications here on Zach’s News? You might even have a chance to be on your very own READ poster! Just contact your Subject Specialist Librarian to set up a brief interview!
