Researcher Workshop Series for winter 2018

January 16, 2018 — 

UM Libraries offers a Researcher Workshop series each term at the Fort Garry and Bannatyne campuses focusing on the bibliographic tools and resources needed by researchers, faculty members and graduate students.

The sessions cover topics such as using journal metrics, using citation managers for better organization of research, as well as in-depth Scopus training.

An Open Access (OA) Funder Requirements session highlights OA options to help you comply with the funder requirements

Attending one or even several of the sessions offered through this series can help you discover the best tools, techniques and strategies to benefit your work, and remain on track with current goals and projects.  

Sessions typically run for an hour at time over lunch, from 12 to 1pm. Researcher Workshops are held at both the Fort Garry and Bannatyne Campuses, as well as online via webinar.

 

A list of seminars can be found below. All run from 12 to 1pm unless otherwise noted.
