Learn about Scopus. Join the Graff Library for a Scopus Training Day on December 2nd! The Graff Library is hosting a day to learn about Scopus, how to use it, and the reasons for incorporating it into your research toolkit. We’ve asked Glenn Risolo, MLS, Customer Development Manager for Elsevier, to teach various Scopus educational sessions and provide individualized content sessions on December 2nd in the Graff Library Conference Room. Light refreshments will be served.
Scopus is a relatively recent addition to our suite of e-resources at the Graff Library. Between October 2008 and October 2009, you ran over 3,500 Scopus searches. With the purchase of it about a year ago, we added to our biomedical databases a resource that:
- is updated daily;
- provides citation access to 38 million life, health, physical and social sciences articles, Web sites, and patents;
- has the ability to track article citations;
- run comparative journal analytics; and
- identify citation patterns.
