Introduction to CaltechTHESES for Staff

Do you work with graduate students who are working on their thesis?  Did you know that electronic copies of theses must be submitted to CaltechTHESIS as part of the PhD graduation requirement?  How often do you get questions about formatting, printing, or binding theses?  Do you maintain web pages that include information about theses?  This class is geared toward option coordinators or other Caltech staff who work with graduate students or their theses, but is open to anyone interested on campus.   We will give you an overview of the CaltechTHESIS database (http://thesis.library.caltech.edu), brief you on the steps the students need to take to deposit their thesis, and touch on intellectual property considerations and access.  We will also give you tips on using the information in the database to populate your web page more effectively.

Library Workshop: SciFinder: Not Just For Chemists: Tuesday, June 26, 2:00pm

SciFinder:  Not Just For Chemists

SciFinder (Chemical Abstracts Service) is a premier database for science and engineering.
In addition to chemistry and chemical engineering, SciFinder coverage extends to the chemical aspects of biology, environmental engineering, geology, materials science, medicine, and physics.

SciFinder content and format coverage (journal articles, patents, theses, etc.) will be reviewed and search techniques for topics, chemical substances and reactions will be displayed.
We will also briefly compare and contrast SFS with other important databases: Combined Chemical Dictionary, Reaxys (Beilstein/Gmelin), Web of Science, and PubMed.

An extensive description of the SciFinder (web) database is available:  http://library.caltech.edu/learning/classhandouts/scifinderwebhandout.pdf
