  • Making research work for you: Current awareness and citation management Erin Boyce, MLIS Clinical Librarian University Hospital B3-248A X35860 Robin Featherstone, MLIS Clinical Librarian UWO, Taylor Library x86383
  • Information Overload
    • Approximately 20 million articles in PubMed
    • Approximately 10,000-20,000 records added each week
    • Estimated 627.5 hrs/month required to stay current in one discipline (Alper et al, 2004)
      • Only 720 hrs in a 30-day month!
    • Popular Media
      • Reports 2-20 health-related stories each day
    • World Wide Web
      • Internet searches on health topics return thousands of results
  • How to keep up, and keep organized…
    • On the agenda:
    • Staying Current in your field
      • Using eTOC and e-mail alerts
      • Using RSS and RSS aggregators
    • Managing your citations in Refworks
      • Importing from PubMed
      • Creating bibliographies
      • Sharing citations
  • Terminology
    • eTOC (electronic Table Of Contents): The table of contents for a particular journal sent to your e-mail
    • Alert : Notification of new website, database, or journal content
    • RSS (Really Simple Syndication): A web publishing technology that allows end users to automatically receive new digital content from the provider.
    •  
  • eTOC – Electronic Table of Contents
    • You can subscribe to an eTOC of almost any journal (not just those in the LHSC collection)
    • Ways to Subscribe:
      • [email_address]
      • Using the UWO library catalogue
      • Contact your librarian!
  • E-mail alerts for searches
    • Automatically re-runs your search strategies at a selected interval
    • Sends an e-mail with any new content that fits your search parameters.
    • Can be stopped at any time
    • Make sure the search is well done from the start: avoid reading a lot of extra junk!
  • What is this RSS thing anyway?!
    • If you are receiving multiple eTOCs, if you regularly check certain websites, and if you consistently follow any blogs you may benefit from using an
    • RSS aggregator .
    • Some of these include: Google Reader and Bloglines
    • This will consolidate all your eTOC alerts, search updates and new website and blog information into a single easy to manage access point.
  • Managing Citations using RefWorks
    • RefWorks is a web-based application for storing, organizing, sharing and creating bibliographies
