Graduate Theological Union
Spring 2013 Library Workshops
For Spring 2013, Reference will provide an open lab for students on Friday afternoon from 1 to 4. Due to Comprehensive Exams, the open lab will not be availalbe on February 15 and April 12.
No need to sign up in advance.
The three main skills taught are:
Finding Books through GRACE
Graduate-level research requires more than basic searching. You will learn how to use GRACE, the GTU library’s online catalog, to find books and other resources as well as how to create your own account.
How to Use the ATLA/JSTOR Database
This workshop will teach you how to use the ATLA Religion Database and JSTOR, both of which provide access to online journal full-text articles or citation information.
Using 360 Search/360 Link/e-Journal Portal to Expand Your Research
360 Search is a federated search engine which can search over 40 databases simultaneously. 360 Link is a link resolver, helping you find full-text articles. e-Journal Portal tells you whether a particular journal is available online and provides a link to get you there.
Learn how to organize your references/citations and how to use EndNote software effectively. This is a “bare bones” class of the most commonly used features of EndNote.
