Video and audio recordings of the Funding to Publication library instruction sessions are now available. This fall the series focused on the research needs of graduate students, though attendance was open to all UVM and FAHC employees and students. The recordings are available along with other session materials on the series web site at http://danaguides.uvm.edu/research2010. The recording features all slides and teacher instruction audio from the series.
A total of 44 graduate students, residents, nurses, faculty, and staff attended one or more of the six sessions. Topics included: advanced literature review skills; managing references with EndNote; poster publishing; scholarly publishing issues; and grant-finding resources.
Surveys conducted during and after the series showed that students valued the time spent working with the databases and software described during the sessions. Attendees noted that the series was arranged very well, and that they would recommend it to their colleagues.
The librarians running the series were especially appreciative of feedback received. They are also using the videos to assess the quality of the sessions. The Library plans to offer a similar series in the fall of 2011 and incorporate some of the suggested changes from participant feedback and video analysis. Please contact Donna O’Malley firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending.
