Undergraduate Research Journals

Monday, December 1st, 2014 | Posted in News, Services, Students by Tomaro Taylor | No Comments »

Undergraduates interested in publishing their work might want to consider the following journals as potential publication venues:

(Thanks to CBCS Research Coordinator Ardis Hanson, Ph.D. for compiling this list!)

Before submitting your work, talk with your professor(s), review the author/submission guidelines, and consider making an appointment with the USF Writing Studio to discuss your submission.

If you’re in the beginning stages of your research project, make an appointment with an FMHI librarian in order to find the materials most appropriate for your topic! We can also help you track the materials you find and cite them correctly by showing you how to use a citation management system.

Do You Need a Library Skills Review?

Monday, November 17th, 2014 | Posted in News, Services, Students by Tomaro Taylor | No Comments »

Only a few weeks remain in this semester!  And, while it’s easy to say “DON’T PANIC,” we know that you’re probably panicking… even if it’s just a little bit.  So, instead of “don’t panic,” how about “DON’T WORRY”?  The FMHI Library presents a series of workshops to help alleviate your end-of-semester stress:

Date Time Workshop
Monday, November 17 Noon (12-1PM) RefWorks and EndNote citation management systems
Tuesday, November 18 Noon (12-1PM) EndNote and RefWorks citation management systems
Wednesday, November 19 Noon (12-1 PM) Finding articles using library databases
Thursday, November 20 2-3PM Narrowing your research topic
Friday, November 21  2-3PM Got questions? We have answers!

Interested in the topic but unable to attend?  Arrange a one-on-one session with a librarian.

We’ve Moved (Some Stuff Around)

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014 | Posted in Collections, Faculty, News, Resources, Students by Tomaro Taylor | No Comments »

If you’ve visited the FMHI Research Library in the past few weeks, you may have noticed that a few things have moved around:

Computer Lab

  • We received a CCTV!  The magnifier is located across from the information desk, in the commons area.
  • The ADA-compliant computer has moved to the left of its original placement in order to accommodate the CCTV.

Collections

  • AV Materials are now located in the first range of stacks in the commons area
  • Journals and Reference materials have also moved to the first range of stacks in the commons area
  • Tests and Measures are now housed with the archives (please ask for assistance)

Print Services

  • To make room for the CCTV, we removed one of the lab computers from the commons area.  This computer is now located next to the printer for a quicker print option.  No need to wait in line for a computer (though you may need to wait in line for the quick print station).

Question? Comments?  Let us know.
