Each quarter our librarians partner with faculty to provide class specific sessions on how to perform effective literature reviews, efficient use of bibliographic tools, and detailed instruction on specialized resources. We continually add new online information sources to support research and teaching.


Throughout the academic year, our librarians offer workshops on advanced searching techniques available in Scopus, Web of Science, Google Scholar, xSearch and SearchWorks, bibliographic management tools including Mendeley, Refworks, EndNote and Zotero, and research sources for standards, patents and materials science.
