Tricks of the Trade – How to get your article?

Finding Articles

In this episode, we discuss different ways to get a hold of articles in science that are Open Access. There is a wide range of possibilities, some of them are integrated into the Library service, and some are browser extensions that you can install on your own or via your University. There are also illegal ways to get scientific articles, that you should not use.

The guest in this episode is Guus van den Brekel, medical Information specialist at the University Medical Center at the University of Groningen, in the Netherlands.

Guus, who can be followed on Twitter @digicmb have also published his presentation. You can find it in this blog post beneath.

Senior Scientists and Valuable Data

What happens to my research data when I retire?

It’s important that we keep and store the research done by Senior Scientists before they retire. Their data is valuable. and might be even more valuable in the future. But to store the data correctly we need the researchers to help sort the data.

Lars Figenschou, biologist and Academic Librarian at the University Library at UIT – The Arctic University in Tromsø, explains why.
In addition, he gives us some good tips on how to create a program at the University that secures valuable data.
