Introduction to Arduino and MaKey MaKey Sep 4, 2014 Description:
Do you want to build a robot that interacts with Twitter, a banana piano, or your own wearable electronics project? This workshop will cover the basics of Arduino and MaKey MaKey, two microcontroller circuits designed to make creating interactions between computers and the physical world easy for everyone. In this workshop, we'll create some simple example circuits and talk about how to check out electronics kits from the Libraries. Both Arduino Inventor Kits and MaKey MaKeys are available for one-week checkout from both Hill and Hunt Library, so participants will be able to take a kit home with them after the workshop to continue exploring and experimenting (based on kit availability).


Time: 6:00 pm

Prerequisites: No electronics experience required! Laptops will be available for participants, but bring your own if you want to save and edit your projects after the workshop.

Literature reviews Sep 5, 2014 Description: Join NCSU Librarians and campus partners to learn about important research skills for graduate students, postdocs, faculty, staff, and undergraduates doing research.

In this session, you will have an opportunity to think about the purposes of conducting literature reviews.  Along the way, you will learn about library services, workshops, and reference management tools you may not know about. The information will help you to connect with librarians in your subject area for more in-depth help finding information later.

Want to know more? Watch a short video here: http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/tutorials/lit-review

Time: 10:00 am

Prerequisites: Available to graduate students, postdocs, faculty, or undergraduates working on research projects.

Literature searching and Citation Management using Refworks Sep 5, 2014 Description:

In this workshop you will learn how to conduct and manage your research effectively using several online tools and the Libraries' website. Topics of discussion include:

*  How to optimize your topic keywords and maximize your use of the specific databases tailored to your field of research. 
*  Tips and tricks, such as customizing Google Scholar settings, using interlibrary loan, managing your research with RefWorks, and making use of library services. 
*  Connecting you to the reference librarians and collection managers in your subject area for more in-depth research help later.

* How to use the citation management tool, RefWorks, which helps to keep your information saved and organized, as well as help you share references with colleagues and generate bibliographies automatically.

Using Open Educational Resources in Your Classroom: The NCSU Libraries Alt-Textbook Project Sep 10, 2014 Description:

Runaway textbook costs on college campuses have become a major impediment to student success. Students spend an average of $1200/year on textbooks, and 7 out of 10 students have forgone purchasing college textbooks because of cost, according to a recent PIRG survey on 13 college campuses. However, many alternatives to commercial textbooks have emerged in the last decade, allowing faculty to easily find and use current, high-quality free online Open Educational Resources (OERs) for their courses. Through the use of OERs, faculty are free to select and develop more current, customized, and pedagogically relevant learning materials for their courses. In this workshop, NCSU librarians will introduce faculty members to resources and websites for finding high-quality OERs, share example ideas for incorporating OERs into courses, and discuss how to apply for funding through the Libraries’ Alt-Textbook Project, a competitive grant program to adopt, adapt, or create free or low-cost alternatives to expensive textbooks in the classroom for the Spring 2015 and Fall 2015 semesters. See the Libraries' Alt-Textbook Project website for OER resources and information about the grants program: http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/alttextbook
