    Science and Engineering Resources: Introduction Science and Engineering Resources: Introduction Presentation Transcript

    • Science and Engineering Resources: Introduction Joseph Kraus Penrose Library Associate Professor Science and Engineering Reference Librarian March 23, 2010
    • Welcome and Introductions  My background  Provide some information about the Sci-Tech LIS class I took, way back in 1994.  Why am I teaching this course?  At what level will this be taught?  Who are you?  What is your background?  What do you want to learn in the class?  Look at the syllabus

    • The assigned readings  Read to understand the gist of the articles. Try to understand the core concepts. Why the heck did I assign that reading?  There is no need to memorize the minutiae, but you still need to read more than just the abstract.  I will try to have everything available through Bb, but some things might only be available on print reserve.
    • The assigned readings  For next week  The Face of 21st Century Physical Science Librarianship, Science & Technology Libraries, Volume 26, Issue 2 December 2005, pages 71-90, Lina Ortega and Cecelia M. Brown. ortega.pdf is also in Blackboard.  The education and training needs of health librarians—the generalist versus specialist dilemma, Tatjana Petrinic and Christine Urquhart, Health Information & Libraries Journal, Volume 24 Issue 3, Pages 167-176.  Subject Knowledge in the Health Sciences Library, J Med Libr Assoc. 2005 October; 93(4): 459–466.  Digital Libraries and Multi-Disciplinary Research Skills Please read the intro and the section dealing with scholarly communication.
    • The assignments  There will be some ―negative‖ answers.  We won’t have print/electronic access to some of the answers. Don’t spend forever trying to find something that doesn’t exist or we have no direct access.  With some patrons, they might want a comprehensive search on a specific topic to find nothing. (Dissertation or patentability)  Combination of print and electronic resources.  The first assignment will be about 70/30. The following weeks are about 50/50.
    • More about the assignments  Please put the print reference materials back on the shelf after use, and log out of the electronic databases when you are done (if possible).  Cut-n-paste is ok, or have good hand writing.  I'd like to know the title of the source used, the volume number and the page number(s) used. [I don’t need an annotation.]  Please use the given sources. Wikipedia is not an answer for the assignments.
    • Collaborative Project  What do you want to use?  Blog  Wiki  Other service?  Twitter hashtag #lis4375  What are the guidelines? (Find something interesting to share -- one post or comment per week.)  Opt-out is ok.
    • Brief History of Scientific Communication  Pre 1700’s  Books  Letters back and forth  First English language scientific Journal from1665. Henry Oldenburg, the secretary of the Royal Society of London, launched the Philosophical Transactions.
