Top Library Database Webinar Series

Throughout the month of April, Albertsons Library invites all faculty and staff to a series of webinars about several of the library’s top databases. These webinars will be “hands-on” with laptops available, and open to all faculty and staff.

  • Learn how to search for Legal or Business information, or explore the new enhanced search interface of LEXIS NEXIS, one of the premiere academic research databases.
  • Discover the wealth of high quality images, maps, paintings, photographs, and art available in the ARTSTOR database that can enhance and supplement teaching efforts.
  • Become familiar with ENDNOTE WEB, an online bibliographic citation manager that can enhance the research and writing process for you and your students.
  • Leverage the wealth of data available in the journal archive JSTOR, or go behind the scenes of Arts & Sciences Collection VIII to learn about the core materials it contains.
