Free information sessions on two research tools

April 10, 2017

Join MSU Libraries on April 24 for two free information sessions about tools that can help researchers and students.

We invite researchers to join us at noon for lunch and information about Mendeley, a free reference manager and academic social network. With Mendeley, you can generate bibliographies, collaborate with other researchers, and find and access papers online. Through MSU Libraries, MSU researchers also have access to Mendeley Institutional Edition, which includes premium features like 100gb of storage and unlimited private groups for collaboration.

At 1:30pm, faculty and students alike are invited to a session on Scopus, a database of over 57 million abstracts and citations of peer-reviewed literature from a wide variety of disciplines. With Scopus, you can use detailed search options refine your search, save documents to a customized list, export references to Mendeley and other citation managers, find out who's citing your own articles, and more.

Both sessions will be led by representatives from Elsevier, which develops resources, software, and networks for multidisciplinary research.

Registration for both sessions is free, but seats are limited, so reserve your space today:
