Are you looking for additional ways to keep current with the latest literature in your field?  Did you know that you can set up alerts within many resources available through the library that will notify you about new content in your research area?

In support of Celebrate Research Week, the David Lam Library is offering a Current Awareness for Business Researchers workshop on Thursday March 8 from 9.30-11.00am in the Canaccord Learning Commons, Rm 222.

In this workshop, we will cover how to set up e-mail or RSS alerts for:

  • Latest business and finance news
  • Articles published in your research area
  • Latest issues of important journals
  • Business books at UBC Library

We will also look at how to use RefWorks as current awareness tool.

This session is for graduate students at the Sauder School of Business.

UBC Library is running a trial of the International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS):http://resources.library.ubc.ca/1814

IBSS “includes over two million bibliographic references to journal articles and to books, reviews and selected chapters dating back to 1951. It is unique in its broad coverage of international material and incorporates over 100 languages and countries. Over 2,800 journals are regularly indexed and some 7,000 books are included each year.”

Please submit your feedback via the feedback form linked from the information page, or directly to Barbara Sobol.

The trial runs until March 15.

UBC Library is running a trial on Business Expert Press Digital Libraries (2010-2011 e-book collection).

“Business Expert Press publishes concise, practical ebooks for students advancing towards degrees in business/management — anyone, in fact, interested in entrepreneurship. There are plenty of introductory textbooks for entry-level students, and numerous sources of primary research materials for doctoral candidates. But for students seeking a BS or MBA, the options are limited. Our authors address this gap by translating real-life business experiences into teaching tools in topics such as accounting, supply chain management, cultural issues, and sustainability. Editors from Georgetown University, the University of Southern California, Boston University, and Georgia Tech (and others) are building curriculum-connected collections mapped to the programs taught in business and management schools, so they’re relevant for today’s students.”

This trial includes e-books from the 2010-2011 Digital Libraries.

Please submit your feedback via the feedback form linked from the information page, or directly to Lindsay Ure.

The trial runs until January 14th, 2012.

The David Lam Library is offering a RefWorks for Business Researchers workshop on Wednesday November 9th from 9.00-10.30am in the Canaccord Learning Commons. The workshop is open to graduate students at faculty at the Sauder School of Business.

RefWorks is a web based citation management tool, available to all UBC students, faculty and staff through UBC Library.

RefWorks allows you to:

  • Create your own account and maintain a database of citations.
  • Import citations directly from many of the library databases and from the UBC Library catalogue.
  • Generate a bibliography in many different citation styles.
  • Share your database (or just one or more folders within it) with fellow researchers.
  • Pull in RSS feeds of new articles, from databases and journal content pages, and add them to your RefWorks account.

Click on the link below to register for this hands-on session in which you can begin to build your own RefWorks database: http://elred.library.ubc.ca/libs/dashboard/view/2794

The workshop will be held in CLC 222, the small computer lab in the Canaccord Learning Commons (which is located at the North End of the Henry Angus building, above Tim Hortons).  


“With the guidance of the librarian, I was able to find the resource I need to make me shine and outperform other candidates during the interview.”

UBC Library is running a trial on SAGE Research Methods Online until November 3rd.

“SAGE Research Methods Online is a web-based research methods tool created to support researchers and students as they explore relevant content across the social and behavioral sciences, covering quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods. 

SRMO links over 100,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand a particular method or identify a new method, and write up their research. Since SRMO focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, researchers from the social sciences, health sciences and other research areas will find it useful.”

We encourage you to explore the database and provide your feedback using the form listed on the database access page

Today we launched the new David Lam Library website. The new website is part of a UBC Library wide move to the WordPress platform.

The website has a new URL: http://www.lam.library.ubc.ca. Although there is a redirect from the old site, we encourage you to update your links.

We have taken this as an opportunity to make some changes to our website, particularly our home page.

Changes to the home page include:

  • More prominent menus for our research guides and course guides, which provide tailored lists of resources for a variety of classes and types of business research
  • A “Need research help?” link which provides links to research tools and information on where and how to receive research help from the business librarians
  • Clearer location, hours and contact information on the right of the page (under About Us)
  • A new search box for our David Lam Library FAQs database
  • The New in the Lam Library blog is now integrated into the new site under the News tab on the right

If you have any feedback, please let us know.
