WISER (Workshops in Information Skills and Electronic Resources) is a programme of classes designed to help you make the most of electronic and other library resources. The classes are usually free and are open to all library users, but you do need to book a place in order to attend. Classes usually take place at OUCS (13 Banbury Road).

Further information, including how to book and the full programme for Michaelmas Term, is available on the Bodleian Libraries website. The following courses are coming up next week (Week 3):

WISER: Who's citing you? Tools for tracking citations

Citation-tracking databases can help you monitor the impact of your research. Knowing where and how often you’re being cited is useful for grant or job applications, and deciding where to submit an article for publication. We cover citation searching in Web of Science, Scopus & Google Scholar.
Presenters: Juliet Ralph and Angela Carritt
Wednesday 27 October 2.00 - 3.30pm (Week 3) >Book Now

WISER: Bibliometrics - the Black Art of Citation Ranking

Mystified by metrics? Anxious about impact factors? Happy with your h-index? The forthcoming Research Excellence Framework is likely to place increased emphasis on the use of these measures. This session covers how they work, how they are interpreted and how to make them work for you!

RefWorks for Humanities

RefWorks is an online tool which allows you to manage your references, insert them into your work, automatically generate bibliographies and easily switch between citation styles. This introduction is open to all, but the section on importing references will focus on Humanities examples.
Presenters: Valerie Lawrence and Shona McLean
Friday 29 October 9.15am - 12.15pm (Week 3) > Book Now
