Bodleian iSkills have moved online for Trinity Term and continue to provide free webinars and recorded videos on a range of topics.
An online introduction to using Oxford Libraries remotely, including the latest information on the services available and how to access them; finding and using online resources that can be read from home; and what to do if you can’t find the material you need.
Online booking is still required for these workshops.
There are also a number of workshops which have been recorded as videos and made available online. So far these include:
Adapted from the iSkills workshop ‘Finding stuff: scholarly literature for your research’, this series of videos cover how to use SOLO (the University’s resource discovery tool); search techniques and creating an effective search query; finding theses and conferences for your research.
Adapted from the iSkills workshop ‘Getting information to come to you’, this series of videos guides you through setting up alerts so that you automatically receive notification of new research in your area. The videos cover setting up alerts in SOLO, Web of Science, JournalTOCs and Zetoc, Nexis UK, JiscMail and others.
This is the introductory presentation from the iSkills workshop: ‘Referencing: choosing and using software’. Bodleian iSkills will not be running any live workshops this term on reference management, but the video link will also take you to our homepage for ‘Managing your references’, with further links to information and guidance in using a variety of reference management software packages.
