UCBA RefWorks Workshop

by Lauren Wahman

​​​The UCBA Library and the UCBA Learning & Teaching Center sponsored a RefWorks workshop on Thursday February 9.  Randy Roberts (Langsam Library) brought his roadshow out to UCBA for the first time and we had 12 attendees representing a wide range of disciplines such as Nursing, Business, English, and Biology.  This was a great example of libraries collaborating to help faculty learn more about one of our many resources!  Thanks again Randy!

whiteboardThe UCBA Library faculty hosted the UCBA November Faculty Social on Tuesday, November 15th as a follow-up to our first “Whiteboards and Wine” spring faculty social event. We indulged in excellent refreshments and conversation in the Learning & Teaching Center and also had the pleasure of introducing a special guest and new colleague from UC Libraries, Mark Konecny, Scholarly Communications and Digital Publishing Strategist.

It was a perfect excuse to gather and relax with colleagues as we approach the last weeks of the semester!
