Science of Synthesis Workshop – April 17

The Science & Engineering Library is delighted to host this training session for Science of Synthesis.

Thieme’s Science of Synthesis is one of the core resources for the synthetic chemist, a critical collection of synthetic methods in organic and organometallic chemistry that highlight the highest quality and most relevant experimental procedures in great detail.

Up to 28 (and counting) volumes, Science of Synthesis is searchable by bibliographic information, reaction details and substance information–including structures. It also serves as a bridge to the entire Houben-Weyl archive, your gateway to the synthetic literature going back over 150 years.

Trainer: Michael Poynter, Thieme
For: Interested faculty, staff and students
When: Tuesday, April 17, 9:15-10:15am (with 20 minutes for Q&A)
Where: CLICS (Revelle Plaza), room 264

RSVP is encouraged. For more information contact tmvogel@ucsd.edu.

RefWorks Classes – Jan/Feb

The UCSD Libraries will offer hands-on workshops on using RefWorks during weeks 3, 5 & 6 of the quarter. Class size is limited, so please register at http://libraries.ucsd.edu/services/refworks.html.

RefWorks is web-based software you can use to organize your references and instantly format them for bibliographies and research papers. It’s also free to UCSD students. This quarter, we’re offering 2 workshops:

RefWorks I: The Basics of RefWorks
(Jan 22, 2-2:50pm — Feb 5, 10-10:50am — Feb 13, 2-2:50pm)

  • Navigating the RefWorks’ interface and help resources

  • Creating an account for your RefWorks “library”
  • Importing references from databases to build your “library”
  • Managing your references and turning them into a bibliography

RefWorks II: Customizing Your RefWorks Library
(Jan 24, 2-2:50pm — Feb 7, 10-10:50am — Feb 15, 2-2:50pm)
Note: Taking RefWorks I or having equivalent experience with RefWorks is needed for this class.

  • More about managing references in your “library”

  • Editing output styles
  • Using Write-N-Cite to insert and format references in your paper

These workshops are not discipline-specific, and we’ll provide in-class exercises for science/engineering, humanities/social sciences, and biomedical sciences.

If you have any questions, or would like to arrange for a RefWorks consultation outside these times, contact the S&E RefWorks Coordinator.

Beilstein & Gmelin for Beginners
October 26 (Thurs) 4:00-5:30pm @ CLICS 264 (TLC)

This workshop will get you started on using the Beilstein (organic) and Gmelin (inorganic/organometallic) databases, which index millions of chemical substances by name, structure, reaction and property data. Will cover software setup, navigating the interface, search tips locating the articles cited in the databases.

Categories: Classes

SciFinder Workshop – 10/19

SCIFINDER SCHOLAR: THE BASICS
October 19 (Thurs) 2:00-3:30pm @ CLICS 264 (TLC)
Seating is limited. Please register.

The core index to the chemical literature with 25 million journal article and patent references, SciFinder Scholar is an essential resource for chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering, materials science (and physics, environmental science, etc.) researchers. However, it has a few challenges that sometimes make it less accessible than some of the other databases. This workshop will cover everything from software setup, to topic/name/CAS/structure searching.

RefWorks Classes in October

The UCSD Libraries will be teaching a series of workshops on RefWorks in early-mid October. Unlike EndNote, RefWorks is web-based and free to all UCSD students. With RefWorks, you can MANAGE YOUR RESEARCH by:

  • Importing, storing and organizing your references from books, journal articles, the web, etc.

  • Formatting bibliographies, endnotes, footnotes and in-text citations in any output style

SCHEDULE AND REGISTRATION FORM

Please contact Teri Vogel if you have any questions, or want to schedule RefWorks training outside the workshop times listed on the registration form.

Spring 2006 Workshops: RefWorks, Patents, etc.

The Spring 2006 list of S&E Library Workshops is now available:

  • The S&E Library is offering 2 returning workshops (Just for Engineers and Introduction to Patents) and 2 new ones (Inspec for Physics and –by popular demand– Intermediate Patents). Additional workshops may be scheduled later in the quarter.
  • The RefWorks classes have their own registration page. These workshops, unless otherwise specified are geared for undergraduates in any major. Librarians from the S&E, Biomedical, and Social Sciences & Humanities Libraries are leading these workshops and will use examples from databases in all three subject/discipline groups. Please contact the S&E RefWorks contact person if you have any questions, or want to schedule a time outside of these workshops for training.
