Meet the New Ask Models

Monday, November 28th, 2011

It’s the time of year when we remind you to ASK US FOR HELP with your research papers and final assignments.

We’re here to help you find great resources, to save you time, and to reduce frustration.

Who better to remind you of this down the stretch than our Fall of 2011 Ask Models?

Thanks to all the models for lending their creativity to a good cause and a great message: ASK!

Seriously. Just ask!

Literature and Film Resource Workshops

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald

Do you need to find “scholarly” articles and books about an author or literary work? Did your professor tell you not to include anything that was found using Google? Literature Resource Center and MLA International Bibliography can help.

Literature Resource Center is a portal to full-text scholarly articles, essays, and biographical sketches on authors worldwide (including selected filmmakers) and their works from every time period and literary discipline.

MLA International Bibliography is an important database of citations to scholarly journal articles, books, and book chapters on literature, film, and related topics.

Learn the basics of using these two important databases for your research. No previous knowledge is required for these introductory workshops.

Dates:

  • Literature Resource Center, Wednesday, September 14 : 4:00-5:00
  • MLA International Bibliography, Wednesday, September 14 : 5:00-6:00
  • Literature Resource Center, Monday, November 7 : 4:00-5:00
  • MLA International Bibliography, Monday, November 7 : 5:00-6:00

RefWorks Pilot Completed

Monday, June 21st, 2010

After a one-year pilot project, the UVM Libraries has decided to cancel our trial subscription to RefWorks, a tool for managing citation information. The Bailey/Howe Library will continue to provide support for two other excellent bibliographic management tools: EndNote and Zotero. Not sure which is right for you?

To learn more about EndNote and Zotero visit: Introduction to Managing Information.

Registered UVM RefWorks users will not be able to access Refworks after June 30, 2010. If you are an existing UVM RefWorks user you will need to export your data out of RefWorks before our access expires.

If you need further assistance, please contact:

New Ask Photographs

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

Student model #1

The Libraries photographed over fifty new models (including members of the budding UVM Quidditch team) for our Ask campaign at the Activities Fest on 9/9/09. We had a great time basking in the sun, eating hot dogs, and meeting new models, as well as catching up with some old friends.

Student model #2

We’ve posted the new photos to Flickr and uploaded copies of some advertisements previews to our Facebook group. Go ahead and tag your friends.

Student model #3

We’ll be doing more photo shoots later in the semester and will have details about those soon. Info can be found here or on the UVM Libraries fan site on Facebook.

Student models #5 & #5

As always, feel free to ASK us anything!
