Request a Customized APA Style CENTRAL Training Webinar

Do you need to train faculty and instructors on how to incorporate APA Style CENTRAL® into their classrooms? Or show a group of students how to use it to write their papers? Are you interested in a more tailored introductory webinar covering the unique tools and services available in APA Style CENTRAL for a wide variety of institutional users?

We can arrange a customized APA Style CENTRAL training session for your class or colleagues. Talk to us! Tell us what you’re looking for and let us help you get started.

APA Style CENTRAL’s exclusive platform for writing in APA Style supports learning throughout all stages of the research and scholarly writing processes, from idea generation to publication. We can help your users to better understand everything that APA Style CENTRAL offers and begin using it to their advantage for research, writing, and teaching.

APA Style CENTRAL: Learn-Research-Write-Publish

Our training specialists can schedule a session specifically tailored for your audience and learning objectives. We have experience providing training for librarians, faculty, students, writing center tutors, Learning Management System (LMS) administrators, and other potential users. If desired, we can break up the training into multiple sessions, which facilitates more participation, makes it easier to coordinate schedules, and enables us to further customize the material. Our training sessions are interactive, remotely accessible from multiple locations, and can be recorded for later viewing by anyone who is unable to attend.

If an existing APA Style CENTRAL training session seems perfect, we will work with your schedule to arrange a convenient time. A live platform demo with a few slides often works well, but you can tailor the format. If you have a list of specific questions and features you want to know more about, we’ll work with you to create a fully customized training session.

We can also schedule a phone call with a few key people if trying to get all stakeholders in the same place is like herding cats. (We understand.)

From the Deck of . . . the MLA ’17 Sunrise Seminar

Welcome to “From the Deck of . . .” an irregular series in which we highlight search demos and other information from the slide decks we create for our live training sessions. You can view and download these materials from our SlideShare account.

At the Medical Library Association Annual Meeting last month, we presented a Sunrise Seminar training session. The session included a review of the fields and features added to PsycINFO® in August 2016, and incorporated an explanation of how and why you might use the Medical Subject Headings, or MeSH terms, that have been added to PsycINFO. This demo was originally developed for our presentation earlier this year at the Association for College & Research Libraries Conference, and was recapped in a blog post in early April.

We also demonstrated how how a student would use the APA Style CENTRAL® Writing Center to write a paper. The slides from the session include plenty of screenshots, but you can see the process in action by viewing the recording of our webinar, Writing Papers in APA Style CENTRAL. The entire session is under 30 minutes, but you can skip straight to the demo using this link.

You can review the slides from our MLA 2017 Sunrise Seminar on our SlideShare account. In addition to the sections described here, you’ll also find some sample search scenarios for PsycTESTS®.
