Spring Welcome Week, Library workshops for graduate students

Brush up your library research skills with a workshop.
Sessions focus on learning how to organize your bibliographies, finding out to how to track down tricky citations, understanding the intricacies of analyzing data, and even just knowing your way around an American research library.

Full calendar of NYU Library events is available here.

Mark Algee-Hewitt Digital Humanities talk this Thursday, 1pm Bobst Library, NYU

Thursday 6/4
1-2:30pm
Avery Room, Avery Fisher Center (NYU Bobst Library 2nd floor) for a talk by Mark Algee-Hewitt, Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities, Associate Director of the Stanford Literary Lab, Department of English, Stanford University.
Dr. Algee-Hewitt’s talk is titled: Data and the Critical Process: Knowledge Creation in the Digital Humanities.
What happens when the material of the humanities is transformed into data and algorithmically parsed in current Digital Humanities work? What do we gain by bringing computational methods to bear on literary historical or critical questions and, when we do so, how do we fundamentally change the kinds of questions that we can ask?  In this talk I explore the meaning behind the practical aspects of Digital Humanities analyses as I probe the delicate balance we maintain as we apply the critical methodologies of the humanities to the algorithmically derived, statistically significant data that lies behind our results.
Coffee and snacks provided.

NYU Libraries Grad Student Research Breakfast & 2014 GIS Day

We invite you to join us for two special events: a research breakfast for graduate students and our 3rd annual GIS Day.

Graduate Student Research Breakfast on November 20th
Come have breakfast, talk with our librarians about your project, and take care of those lingering research to-do list items. We’ll have specialists from across the disciplines who can help get you (re)oriented to our resources, get you started with citation management tools, and help you get the most out of our collections and services. This informal event lasts for two hours, and you can come and go as you like during that time.

Thursday, November 20, 10:00am-12:00noon
Bobst Library 10th-floor Graduate Research Exchange (northwest corner)
To RSVP, go to http://library.nyu.edu/grads
GIS Day @ NYU on November 19th
Join us for the 3rd annual GIS Day @ NYU. The aim of GIS Day is to continue to build and nurture NYU’s GIS community by bringing attention to the GIS resources at NYU, raise awareness of the value of using GIS tools, and showcase the exciting GIS and spatial research being conducted here at NYU.

Wednesday, November 19, 1:00-5:00pm

We look forward to seeing you at one or both events!

From the NYU Libraries Student Working Group: Meet a subject librarian and take a survey!

Hello from the NYU Libraries:
Did you know?

The NYU Libraries have subject librarians skilled in every discipline. Subject librarians can help you find and use the best resources; help you discover the key works, methodologies and theories in your field; and connect you with other resources that support your research.
You can find contact information for your subject librarian(s) by going to http://library.nyu.edu/research/lib_arc.html. Or visit us physically at one of our reference desks or virtually at http://library.nyu.edu/ask – we’ll connect you with the best person to help with your research needs.

Annotating with PDFs? Take a survey!

  • Do you wish you could annotate and organize your PDFs more easily?
  • Would you like to sync your PDF collection between your home computer and laptop or mobile device, or share PDFs with a group?
  • Do you already use applications such as RefWorks or EndNote to manage your references, and want to learn how best to integrate their associated PDFs into your workflow?
The Coles Science Center at NYU Libraries, in collaboration with the Graduate Student Working Group, is currently assessing potential interest in software and web-based tools for PDF management. If you are interested in learning more about the different features of tools like Mendeley, Papers, Zotero, and other applications that can help with organizing, annotating, syncing, and sharing your PDF collection, please take our survey here:
If you provide your email address at the bottom of the survey, you will be contacted with information on upcoming library classes about software and web-based tools for PDF management. Thanks!
