Our first series of webinars for students and faculty in 2016 is starting on March 23, 2016. Help us spread the word to faculty, students, and anyone who teaches research methods.
APA provides free training webinars tailored for PsycINFO searchers at all levels of proficiency. We feature three 30-minute sessions: Basic Search, Advanced Search, and Results Management. The sessions may be taken separately, but we encourage interested students to take all three and offer the sessions on consecutive days. These webinars are an ideal way for students to get a refresher on PsycINFO if they have had training earlier in the semester.
Descriptions are provided below. Visit our website to register today for these no-cost sessions.
Research Methods instructors and other faculty: If you would like your students to attend for extra credit, we offer certificates of completion for each session.
Our spring semester lineup of webinars for librarians kicks off on January 14. If you’re looking to expand your search skills, or just need a PsycINFO refresher, we hope you’ll join us! We offer two different one-hour sessions, both of which include live search demos. Continue reading
APA’s training team provides a wide range of training options on an ongoing basis, including advanced webinars for librarians. This spring, we recorded these sessions and made them available on YouTube – a great option if you are unable to attend, want to share a session with colleagues, or find that the schedule doesn’t work for your time zone.
The influx of new faces and fresh perspectives that fall semester brings to an academic campus is refreshing – though it’s often hard to appreciate in the chaos of scheduling and managing requests for instruction and support.
In hopes that we can save you a little time as you prepare for instruction sessions that will require diving into PsycINFO and other APA Databases, this issue provides a quick overview of the training materials you’ll find in our Librarian’s Resource Center. You are welcome to embed, link, adapt, and modify these materials to meet the needs of your students, faculty, and others in need of research support.
Our webinars took a hiatus this summer, and will begin again in September. Full descriptions, schedules and registration information can be found at http://bit.ly/APAwebinars
