Scholars and researchers make use of Google Scholar, yet may not be as familiar with how it actually works, or how to increase access to scholarly materials. This interactive and hands-on workshop will cover how and what Google Scholar searches, how it displays results, and how it connects with Auburn University Libraries holdings in order to increase effective and efficient access to scholarly resources. Sessions will be held in the Library's Second Floor Gibbs Instruction Lab, across from the RBD Library Help Desk.

Click on the Seminars link located under the "Services"  link located in the upper left hand side of the screen of the Auburn University Libraries homepage for registration information, etc.  Seminars are free but registration is required.

Google Scholar:  Monday, October 30:  3:00 - 4:15 p.m.

The Bloomberg Terminal, formerly located in the Learning Commons area on the Second Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library, has been moved to the PC/Mac Room, the computer cluster area opposite the RBD Help Desk, on the Second Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library in the far left back corner.

Since June 2013, through the generosity of the College of Business, a Bloomberg Terminal has been installed on the Second Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library. The terminal is a 24-hour, global financial services system that provides financial, economic and government information covering all market sectors. It features company financials, market data spanning more than 20 years, charts, statistics and current news reports

The Bloomberg Terminal is a dedicated computer terminal for accessing financial data electronically. It seamlessly integrates real-time and historical information on about 5 million bonds, equities, commodities, currencies and funds. It also comprises data on almost every publicly traded company and biographies of more than 1 million people. It has financial, political, and business news as well.

The Bloomberg Terminal is especially useful to researchers in the following disciplines:  Business, Health Care and Pharmaceuticals, Energy, Agriculture (Agricultural Economics), Journalism, Law, and Public Policy (Political Science).

Bloomberg provides free online training resources through their “Bloomberg University” which include both video tutorials and tests.  Free 24/7 online live support integrated into the Bloomberg software.

Please NOTE:   The Bloomberg Terminal is available to Auburn University faculty, staff, and students only.  You must create a log in. A cell phone number will be necessary to authenticate a new user.
