For anyone interested in using Refworks, the referencing software, you may be wondering about where to download some helpguides, or receive a paper mountain of step-by-step how to guides. In the interests of the environment (last month was the hottest April on record) I thought it was a good idea to highlight where to find even better help if you have any questions (you can, of course, email firstname.lastname@example.org). On the Refworks webpage (library.lincoln.ac.uk > resources > Refworks) at the top right-hand corner of the screen you will find a link to the Refworks Community, ideal for the inquisitive reference organiser where an assortment of videos is stored.
In another of our series promoting the delights of the Euromonitor database (library.lincoln.ac.uk > resources > databases > E > Euromonitor) and a Tourism-based theme, I have chosen Trends in Airlines in the Caribbean to highlight that both regional and international airlines boosted overall travel industry performance in the Caribbean. Do you know that last year many airlines added Caribbean destinations? It will be interesting to see how this trend will continue with the opening of Cuba and the lifting of the US embargo on trade after more than fifty years of isolation. Watch the video to find out what the commentator says about this aviation opportunity. An uplifting photo too….
In addition to my earlier post about EthOs, the British Library’s digitised theses service where over 140,000 theses are available for download, the British Library launched a prestigious #ShareMyThesis competition where competitors challenged each other on Twitter to inventively summarise their thesis in 140 characters and write a 600 word summary. The top prize went to Sarah Wiseman, who now works as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University College London and Open University for the passionate tweet #ShareMyThesis Typing numbers wrongly in hospitals can kill people. Understanding why it happens can help design better systems and stop it! Sarah’s outstanding thesis is available here…yet another reason why EthOs is worth exploring, which is found under our database section (library.lincoln.ac.uk > resources > databases > E > EthOs…)
