The following information came from Kim Laursen in ITS regarding upcoming  Research Users Group sessions:

An overview of ADIS (Academic Department Information System)

Brian Erb from McGoogan Library will give a demonstration showing how to explore the world’s leading citation database with multidisciplinary coverage of over 10,000 high-impact journals in the sciences, social sciences, and arts and humanities, as well as international proceedings coverage for over 120,000 conferences. Powerful tools include cited reference searching, Citation Maps, and the Analyze Tool. One of its useful features that PubMed won’t allow is citation searching, that is you can find who cited whom so long as the cited and citing work are in Web of Science.

We’re also hoping to schedule a session this fall to learn about updates on UNMC Branding for scientific posters. I will send out a notice when I hear something.
