International Polar Year 2007-2008

Credit: National Science Foundation

Plans have already begun for science agencies around the globe to observe International Polar Year 2007-2008 (us-ipy.gov). The polar "year" is actually two calendar years (March 1, 2007, through March 1, 2009) to allow observations in the Arctic and Antarctic where severe cold and long term darkness delays or impedes field study.

IPY 2007-2008 plans to:

PLEASE READ: Scopus is available as a trial subscription until December 1, 2006. Scopus provides similar features to the Web of Science, including Cited Reference (WOS) / Citation Tracker (Scopus) searching. The Library needs comments and Web of Science comparisons from our researchers. Please tell us your opinion.

Note: On-site training will be coming soon. If you would like to be notified of this event, please contact Heather McCullough

Science Friday

Science Friday, provided in part by the National Science Foundation and the Sloan Foundation "is a weekly science talk show, broadcast live over public radio stations nationwide from 2-4 pm Eastern time as part of NPR's 'Talk of the Nation' programming. Each week, we focus on science topics that are in the news and try to bring an educated, balanced discussion to bear on the scientific issues at hand. Panels of expert guests join Science Friday's host, Ira Flatow, a veteran science journalist, to discuss science - and to take questions from listeners during the call-in portion of the program."

Journal Use Study

The Library will be conducting a journal use study at both the Main and Branch Libraries, beginning March 6th and ending June 30th, 2006. The study will cover both current subscriptions and bound volumes. During the study, we ask users not to reshelve any journals used in the library. The information from the study may result in the cancellation of some journals with low usage. Potential cancellations will be advertised widely for your comments before any decisions are made. If you have any questions, please contact Heather McCullough.
