Electronic Research Tools workshops: September 20 & 28

Sponsored Programs Office and Bracken Library are combining forces to lead workshops for faculty and graduate students to learn about electronic tools for research and grantsmanship. Workshop sessions will apply to both faculty members and graduate students and will be held during the following dates/ttimes:
Monday, September 20 – 10:00a.m.-12:00 p.m. (identical sessions, choose one)
Tuesday, September 28 – 3:00-5:00 p.m. (identical sessions, choose one)
Both sessions will be held in Bracken Library Room 225.

Workshops will focus on the following information sources:
  • Web of Science (searching literature/citation indices)
  • Community of Science & GrantSelect(identifying funding opportunities)
  • IRBNet (electronically submitting IRB protocols)
Web of Science, is a powerful database that indexes journals in the sciences, social sciences and humanities and enables users to search core journals for major researchers in your field, or search citations to articles.

COS and GrantSelect provide Ball State University with access to services that help you locate funding sources in all the academic disciplines, publicize your research online, and locate potential research collaborators.

IRBNet training will instruct users on how to successfully submit their research protocols electronically to the Institutional Review Board, the Animal Care and Use Committee, or the Institutional Biosafety Committee.

Presenters include Instructional Services Librarians Lisa Jarrell and Brenda Yates Habich, and Research Information Coordinator Augusta Wray.

If you are interested in attending either of these sessions, please register via the Instructional Services workshop page.
