Keeping your Research Up-to-date
1 1/2 hours
Have you spotted the key new journal article, government paper or pre-print on your topic? Would you like to be alerted to the latest contents from your favourite journals or the work other researchers are doing in your area? This information literacy workshop will highlight the range of current awareness services available to help save you time and avoid missing new research as it is published. You will have the opportunity to set up email and RSS alerts from a variety of sources including bibliographic databases, journal table of contents services, government web sites and pre-print repositories. You will also be able to explore a range of communication and networking services, including mailing lists and blogs, which are available to help you keep up to date with the work of other researchers in your area. Strategies for managing services to reduce information overload will also be discussed.
