Hunt Library Special Update — September 17, 2020

Hello Graduate Coordinators,

We’d like to draw your attention to recent library enhancements directed to the graduate student audience.

New services webpage

Our Services for Graduate and Ph.D. Students webpage link is included on the graduate student orientation website. This new webpage is designed to help graduate students navigate to specific services, research guides, and video tutorials created with their unique information needs in mind.

Ask a Librarian virtual service hours

Hunt Library needs your help to spread the word that our Ask a Librarian’s virtual research assistance services extend well beyond the facility’s hours.  Ask a Librarian is available until 10 pm Sunday-Thursday and until 6 pm Friday-Saturday.  Any time you click on the "Chat" icon, you will be connected to a Hunt Library Research Librarian based in Daytona Beach, Florida.  Outside of our service hours, the chat icon says that a librarian is not available.

New webinars

A new webinar series launched this fall semester is carefully geared to specific audiences and recurring topics of interest.  Graduate students may choose to learn about citation management using RefWorks, or how to develop a Literature Review to assist with a research project.  Students who register for a webinar will receive a recording of the session to watch at a later time, should the original date not fit their schedule.  Additional times and topics may be offered on request.

New self-service features

Developed for cohorts requesting library sessions during orientation week, these Research Guides serve as models that can be replicated or revised for additional program areas.

Resources for Ph.D. in Aviation Students

We have also developed detailed videos on how to pull data from specific databases.  (Access requires an ERNIE login.)
