I hope everyone is having a good start to the new semester. For those of you who don't already know me, my name is Bridgette Hendrix and I'm a second year Library Science graduate student. In addition to some of my other roles, I'll also be serving as the student trainer for ProQuest, offering free training sessions on a few of their products- specifically their new research platform (including their numerous databases) as well as RefWorks, the ProQuest bibliographic management service.
Why might ProQuest training benefit you as a student at the iSchool? Well, you can...
· improve research skills with advance searching tips and tricks
· streamline your paper writing process through automatically generated bibliographies and in-text citations (especially helpful since preferred citation styles differ across our programs and even individual classes!)
· familiarize yourself with products from one of the largest, global database vendors, and even get training in databases specific to your research needs
· and lastly, you can get access to even more ProQuest products and resources than our libraries subscribe to, just because you're in the iSchool
I was lucky enough to receive training at ProQuest HQ last summer, and I'd absolutely love to share what I've learned with you. I'm available for small group or individual training sessions, and can even conduct a session online through WebEx if that's more convenient. And since each training is different, we can work together to set up a session that's relevant to you.
