If you have 15 minutes then you have time to get a quick introduction to a free information management tool called RefWorks.
RefWorks in 15 minutes will be offered online January 6, 12, 18 & 27th. Register here.
Similar to EndNote, RefWorks lets you search, organize and manage your references. Since it lives “in the cloud”, once you create your free account**, you can access it from any computer at any location.
Some things RefWorks can do:
- Format a paper or bibliography for you in the citation style you need.
- Instantly add references as you type a paper in MS Word
- Search PubMed (or another database) from within RefWorks
- Share references with other people
A live RefWorks class will be taught by local RefWorks expert Molly Knapp on Thursday, February 10th, 2011 from 10-11 am. Email email@example.com for more information.
**RefWorks is available free to LSUHSC students, faculty and staff.
When children ask parents for help with their homework, no doubt there are moments of blank-stares and head-scratching. After all, hasn’t it been years since we delved into the exciting world of geometry?
In these situations an easy-access tutor would certainly be useful. Well- this idea is no longer a dream.
A press release from Louisiana Public Libraries yesterday stated “The State Library of Louisiana today launched the free educational service HomeworkLouisiana, an online tool that connects Louisiana K-12 students, adults preparing for the GED and college students to a live tutor online for one on one help with homework. It also offers studying and test preparation in all core academic subjects including math, science, social studies and English.”
This amazing resource is available at www.homeworkla.org.
Tutors are available Sunday through Thursday 2 p.m. – 10 p.m. And yes, they are all certified graduate students, teachers, or professional experts.
See the full press release for further information. Spread the word to every student, teacher and parent you know!
