This database will put you through your test-prep paces and also has a new module: Job & Career Accelerator for those of you contemplating a job search and resume writing. This database does all that and more. The more part includes math, reading, writing, and technology skill-building and exercises. It also includes practice exams for GED, ACT, SAT GRE, U.S. citizenship, civil service exams, and professional exams in teaching, nursing, law enforcement, etc. Scoring is instantaneous and explanations given for why an answer is right or wrong. The new Job & Career Accelerator module includes an Occupation Matcher and also enables a user to create a resume, practice interview skills, and apply for open jobs. All Ohioans have access to the database, but must first logon and create an individual account in an Ohio university, public, or school library. Come to the workshop and learn how to use its many features.

Monday November 15, 2010 from 4-5 pm in the Library, Room GRD 111

With paper-writing season upon us, you will want to use this time-saving tool to create bibliographies. This online database allows you to manage, store, and format references in any citation format style selected so that creating bibliographies and in-text citations is efficient and easy. Many research databases and online catalog include an Export to RefWorks feature. As one gathers information from a variety of sources, one simply exports each citation to RefWorks and later creates the bibliography with a few clicks. Online tutorials and handouts within RefWorks allow for personal review and point-of-need instruction. Sounds like a dream machine? Come, create an account, and start using it today!
