Instructor: Richelle Witherspoon and Aggie Sliwka  [RSVP]

Library Research Tools for STEM: This session will review how to effectively use a variety of databases for patents and standards research. Topics include an overview of the advanced Scopus features and functions, such as journal analytics and metrics,  author profile, research trends, PlumX metrics, alerts, and export citations to Mendeley and other programs.  We will compare Google Scholar and Scopus, and demonstrate how to set up off-campus access to full-text publications in Google Scholar. Please bring your laptop with you if you wish to follow along!
Instructor: Tatiana Zaraiskaya  [RSVP]

Mendeley: Learn how to optimize Mendeley for your research projects. By the end of this session, you will be able to create your first bibliography, network with colleagues and peers, and discover new research in your field! You’re encouraged to bring your own laptop.
Instructor: Tatiana Zaraiskaya [RSVP]

Market Research: Discover UNB Libraries market research databases. Learn how they can help validate a business idea, lead you to competitors, provide information on emerging technologies, and more.
Instructor: Sally Armstrong
[RSVP]

Issues in Scholarly Publishing: Scholarly Publishing is increasingly evolving. Navigating these shifts can be overwhelming. Researchers are being asked to consider open access. Bad faith publishers and vanity presses are preying on folks under pressure to publish. Funding bodies are requiring more public access to publications and research data. And, on top of it all, researchers have more ways to connect with their communities of practice than ever before. There are an overwhelming amount of ways to share your work. This session addresses some of these trends in publishing, intellectual property, and scholarly profiles.
Instructors: Mike Nason [RSVP]

Influenza Virus or “the flu” is a common upper respiratory infection. It often starts with a headache, body aches, chills and a cough or sore throat. You may also develop a fever, loss of appetite, fatigue, runny nose, and sneezing. Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea may occur.

The flu can lead to missed time from work or school. It is very contagious, but also very preventable! GETTING A FLU SHOT EVERY YEAR IS ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAYS TO PREVENT CATCHING THE FLU AND SPREADING IT TO OTHERS.
