KU members are invited to participate in EBSCO webinars:
Open Research Platforms as a Service
Date: Wednesday, November 4
Time: 15:00 pm
When it comes to open research, different constituents have different needs. The individual researcher must have the tools to conduct research in the most efficient way. The research community must be able to readily reproduce the research. The institution – and the academic library, in particular – must be able to collect, preserve and understand the impact of research. Join this webinar to learn about tools and services in support of open research and its stewardship.

Practical session dedicated to individual account on the EBSCOhost platform. After the session, participants will know how to set up a free account on the platform and what benefits it brings.
EBSCOhost tools that make Your research more effective
Date: Thursday, November 17
Time: 3:00 pm
EBSCOhost platform is not only a place where researchers can discover scientific literature, but also work with full text and bibliography. During this practical session, we will review the functions, i.e. saving articles in an individual folder and sharing search results with others, using search history, saving data to bibliography managers including Zotero or Mendeley, saving articles to a Google Drive account.
Google vs EBSCOhost platform. Where to look for reliable scientific sources?
Date: Wednesday, November 25
Time: 11:30 am
I often ask participants where they start their search for scientific literature. The most common answer is the Google search engine. During this session, we will try to compare searches using the standard Google search engine, Google Scholar and EBSCO Discovery Service to achieve the most relevant results.
