There’s a lot going on at the M. Louis Salmon Library! Here are some of our upcoming events for March, 2015:
As a governmental data resource, statistical information is an important and valued source of information. Seth Porter will give a presentation covering the background of government statistics, accessing the most valuable resources for this information, and the importance of these resources and skills. This will be an overview of the best Open Source information sources. Join us at 11:30 AM-12:30 PM and learn about government statistics. The free webinar version of this talk is open to all!

This talk expands upon Ron Schwertfeger’s workshop on the basic usage of Endnote, the premium citation manager. This follow-up workshop goes beyond the tasks of adding and inserting citations to getting the most out of this program with increased interconnection and increased utility. This hands-on workshop will include such topics as:
- Using groups, smart groups, and ratings to organize a hectic library
- Sharing groups of references to collaborate with peers and classmates
- Using Endnote with Activity Insight for tenure review

Research in different cultures can be difficult due to problems such as the difference in meaning of common symbols/actions and due to the inherent issues of gathering people under occasional arbitrary constraints. Michael Manasco will demonstrate powerful research tools and how to overcome these elements on Thursday, March 12 at 12:00 PM- 12:45 PM in Salmon Library room 214. Focus will be given to eHRAF (electronic Human Relations Area File) for ethnographic research. This talk is open to all! Note: Some databases will require a UAH login. Pizza and drinks will be provided.
