Are you suffering with information overload? Trying to keep abreast of the latest research papers, industry or educational news, updates from professional organisations, conferences, government reports, and ever-changing websites can be a challenge. RSS feeds are an excellent way of bringing relevant content to your desktop and keeping you up-to-date with new items of interest in your teaching or research subject areas, allowing you to control what information you access and how and when you access it.
In this workshop, participants will learn how to use RSS feeds, and bookmarking and citation tools, to help organise and manage online research material. This practical session will look at how to find and use feeds from key journals, publisher websites, and online library catalogues, as well as how to make the most of Learning Centre’s electronic resources to export, tag, and share your articles and links.
