The UCSF Library has launched a new blog called Convergence. Designed to create awareness about content creation tools for the CLE, the blog provides best practices, news, and in-depth information about the transition to Moodle 2. The blog will cover a wide range of categories, but all share the common goal of being used in the CLE.
Some of the topics that will be covered:
The UCSF Library’s new Biochemistry subject guide provides direct links to the best online resources for finding biochemical information. Link to online textbooks, bibliographic databases, online protocols/methods, handbooks for biochemical data, patent databases, and core biochemical journals.
Please join us on November 14 and 15 for the UCSF Teaching & Learning Center Educational Technology Conference. UCSF faculty, staff, and students are all welcome.
Registration is now open for two days of free workshops and presentations.
Every fall, the UCSF Library reviews its journal subscriptions as part of the renewal process for the upcoming year. Due to the sharp UC budget cuts, the rising cost of electronic journal and database subscriptions, and decreased usage of print journals, we must identify savings through the reduction of print subscription costs.
On September 14, Dr. Martin Y. Iguchi will visit UCSF to speak about online education. All are welcome to attend the presentation.
