Have you seen the new Library Toolbox?

A new page has been added to the library Web site that features a number of different research tools for accessing journals, databases, and books. Also included are tools for bibliography management, organization, and sharing of research.

To find out more about the new tools, including the LibX Toolbar, Catalog Bookmarklet, Proxy Bookmarklet, UTHSC Link, BibMe, Evernote and Zotero,  register for our Emerging Technology Brown Bag on October 13th:  Online Tools to Upgrade Your Research. We will cover different scenarios of research, and how the research tools page can help streamline and broaden the way that you search, organize, and share your information.
