September 14 – Approaching the Lit Review
In this workshop, students will learn how to approach the literature review. Topics covered include database selection, devising effective search techniques, limiting articles to relevant study-types, and tools for keeping track of results.

September 21 – PubMed: An Introduction
This workshop will introduce you to PubMed, the world’s premiere biomedical literature database. We will review the content of this database, planning and executing a search strategy, narrowing search results, finding full-text, and exporting results to a citation management program.
Allie Tatarian (they/them) is a data librarian, liaison for the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and former biologist with over 5 years of wet lab experience. Their experience as a researcher sparked an interest in scientific communication, particularly in the ways scientists communicate with each other (and their future selves). Contact them for help with search strategies, data management, or finding molecular biology tools.
September 28 – EndNote: the Basics
This one-hour session will introduce you to the basics of using the citation management program EndNote. EndNote allows you to create a library of references, attach and read PDFs, and generate in-text citations and bibliographies in Word documents. This session is for beginners – no previous experience required!
