The University Libraries (UL) in partnership with the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) at AUB organized a faculty-special workshop entitled: ‘Managing Your Research by Using EndNote’.

The workshop was held in the Antoun Ghattas Karam e-Classroom in Jafet on Monday, April 25, 2016 from 3:00 to 4:30 pm.

During the workshop, attendees were walked through the basics of the Endnote X7 software including creating an ‘EndNote Library’, setting up groups, exporting records from databases, attaching the full-text articles and using ‘Microsoft Word’ to insert citations and generate a bibliography.

The workshop served as a hands-on session, where faculty members applied the step-by-step process with the assistance of facilitators from Jafet, as well as from the Engineering and the Science Libraries.

The workshop was followed by an optional 10 minutes presentation about LibGuides, a library tool to create course guides.

For further assistance the attendees were directed to use the library guide on How to Use EndNote Client

Upcoming events: The Islamic Manuscript Association presents “The Value of Old Paper” lecture and the “Introduction to Islamic Codicology” course

The Value of Old Paper
Lecture presented by Professor Jan Just Witkam
22 April 2015, 18:30 Nabil Boustany Auditorium, Van Dyck Building, American University of Beirut

Paper that since the industrial revolution had become a disposable material, made in seemingly inexhaustible quantities, is nowadays becoming a rare commodity in libraries, archives and museums. Attempts to preserve our archives on paper have, for the moment, miserably failed on a world-wide scale.
That brings the question of the value of old paper (if it has any) to the foreground. How can we determine this value, and what is the difference between value and price? Or in other words: do we use our memory in order to retain moments of the past, or is memory in fact the ruthless filter by which most of our history is discarded? The speaker will make an attempt to find his way in the labyrinth of opinions that are available and he will use moments of his own life-long love story with paper as a source of inspiration.

Attendance if free of charge, but registration is advisable. For a more complete lecture summary or to register please visit http://www.islamicmanuscript.org/lectureseries

The Islamic Manuscript Association
