The University of New Mexico Libraries provides the campus community and the state with a plethora of resources, services and educational tools. During the next few weeks, the libraries are holding several information sessions to educate the public on the resources available.
Find more information about these and other library workshops and events on the library calendar.
Introducing the Digital Repository
The UNM Digital Repository is a campus-wide collaboration between the University Libraries, Law Library and Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center.
Brownbag sessions will provide a quick introduction to repository features and highlight newly acquired collections. The UNM Digital Repository (formerly Lobo Vault) is the online showcase for UNM scholarship, journals and research and historical resources. Having recently undergone a major system upgrade, the repository now includes new collection resources, an improved user interface and more effective online search tools and better metrics for tracking downloads.
Three brown-bags are being offered in different library locations Sept. 13 and 20, and Oct. 4.
Web of Science and Scopus Town Hall
Help guide future availability of library resources at UNM. Attend a forum to learn more about why the University Libraries and Health Sciences Library & Informatics Center are evaluating Scopus and Web of Science, compare the features of both resources and explore the potential impacts of a change on research and teaching.
Subject librarians will present a brief overview of the resources and the decision to be made, then will be available to answer questions, demo product features, and collect feedback. For additional information on the Scopus Trial and other options for giving feedback, see this story.
Town Halls are scheduled for Sept. 28 and 29.
