Library at Winter Session!

Greetings All,

Your friendly librarians will be at Winter Session ’18 to offer reference assistance as well as some course offerings.  If you haven’t yet, be sure to take a look at our course offerings and feel free to contact us with any questions about courses and/or appointments: 

What do we have in store for you?

SLS Week:

Lit Reviews and the Fielding Library: Join your reference and instruction librarian for a workshop designed to alleviate some of the anxiety associated with conducting your lit review (or just doing dissertation research)! This workshop will consist of two parts. During the first section, we will discuss a number of strategies and techniques that will help you utilize the Fielding Library to complete your literature review.  Topics discussed will include: organizing your research, brainstorming/determining search language, identifying resources, 4 search tips to help you retrieve relevant results, and additional strategies, such as cited reference searching, as time allows.  The second section of the workshop will be a chance for you to implement these new skills and conduct library research related to your topic of interest.  You will be able to focus on whatever strategies best suit your needs with a librarian available to answer questions and assist you.  Please note, some of the content in this course will overlap with the content of the Advanced Library Research course offered at previous sessions.

  • Thursday, January 11th from 1-3:30pm –> Focus on IECD content
  • Friday, January 12th from 1-3:30pm –> Focus on HD/ODC content
  • Students are welcome to join either section as the tips and strategies discussed are still applicable across subjects

Intro to Zotero: This session will offer students an introduction to the citation management tool, Zotero.  We will discuss setting up Zotero preferences, adding documents to your Zotero library, organizing your documents, and using the Microsoft Word Plug-In to generate citations and bibliographies.  Students who wish to download Zotero in advance of the session are advised to download version 5 as it is the most recent version. There will be some time at the end of the session for questions and practice.

  • Thursday, January 11th from 9:30-10:30am


PSY Week

Intro to Zotero: please see description of course just above.

Locating Psych Tests & Measures: This one hour session will review the library resources available for retrieving and/or learning about various psych tests and measures. We will review the use of the PsycTESTS database, navigating PsycINFO to find studies which use particular tests, and searching for sample dissertations which involved the development of a test or measure. Time will be reserved at the end of the session for Q & A. Students who have questions in advance may email them to for inclusion in the workshop.
