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.

Mid-Semester Motivation

Monday, October 6th, 2014 | Posted in Hours, News, Services, Students by Tomaro Taylor | No Comments »

Do you need a mid-semester pick-me-up?  Stop by the FMHI Research Library for a little motivation.  Librarians can help you kick-start your research projects by helping you identify appropriate resources, organize your research, and format your final product. How do we do this?  Databases, citation management systems, and APA style -  though not necessarily in that order.

The FMHI Research Library is open Monday -  Friday, 9 AM – 5 PM.  Drop in at your convenience, or schedule a research consultation.
