Bibliographic Management Tools Adoption and Use

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 4:16pm
Friday, April 11, 2014 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
 

OSU Libraries’ Faculty Association is pleased to invite you to the April Library Faculty Association Seminar Series. Hannah Rempel, Instruction and Science Librarian, and Margaret Mellinger, Instruction and Emerging Technologies Librarian, both at OSU Libraries, will present “Bibliographic Management Tools Adoption and Use.”

Summary: Some of the most popular workshops offered in the Graduate Student & Faculty Workshop Series at OSU Libraries are sessions on bibliographic management software (EndNote, Zotero and Mendeley). While those of us who teach these workshops are familiar with the software itself and often help users troubleshoot issues, we don’t normally get to see how users incorporate the tool into their regular research routines or how using the software affects their research processes. We also miss out on an even more basic question – how do users choose a particular tool and what makes them stick with it? To find out more about how users incorporate these research productivity tools into their workflows, we used interviews, journal prompts, and user-recorded screen capture videos. We will discuss the results of this study, a research methodology that can be used to gain a window into researchers’ workflows, and a model for understanding how users adopt productivity technologies.

Date: Friday, April 11, 2014
Time: 10:00-11:30 a.m.
Place: Valley Library 3622, Willamette Seminar Rooms, Oregon State University, Corvallis campus. (http://osulibrary.oregonstate.edu/visit)

"The Community Translational Research Institute: A Consortium of Academic Health Sciences and Public and Private Public Health Organizations for Community-Based Chronic Disease Prevention" C. Anderson Johnson, PhD, Professor and Founding Dean, School of Community and Global Health, Claremont Graduate University

C. Anderson Johnson, Ph.D. has 28 years of experience in scientific and administrative leadership of large-scale domestic and international community-based research projects. Dr. Johnson's numerous peer-reviewed publications in prevention science have focused on community-based approaches to tobacco, alcohol, and drug abuse prevention, most recently across a range of cultural, environmental, and international contexts.

His current work focuses on dispositional and contextual characteristics as they work in combination (culture by environment and gene by environment interactions) to affect tobacco and alcohol use trajectories and prevention at different points in the trajectories. His research interests include the transnational prevention of tobacco, alcohol and drug abuse, HIV-AIDS, and obesity, social and environmental influences on health related behavior and health outcomes, and community and mass media approaches to prevention of chronic diseases and promotion of healthy lifestyles.
