NVivo and EndNote
October 20, 2014
Room 211, Hodges Library
Register at workshop.utk.edu
This course will teach users how to combine NVivo 10 and EndNote to interface citations with research. Bibliographic data, including full-text articles, can be found and archived in EndNote and then transferred to NVivo for analysis. Most researchers use a bibliographic program to organize references and for the ‘Cite while you write’ function. Learning to use NVivo along with Endnote will allow you to add notes or annotations to your bibliographic database as you review your references. If you have added notes (or other material), NVivo can help you write a review of the literature in a particular area of research, or help you conduct an analysis of the literature (or other documentary sources) pertaining to a particular area of research.
Taught by Rochelle Butler, Qualitative Research Consultant, OIT Research Computing Support, and Jeanine Williamson, engineering librarian.

Many grant funding agencies require researchers to plan ahead for data preservation and sharing as part of their research projects. To aid with these requirements, the UT Libraries subscribes to an online tool that makes the process a little easier – the DMPTool.
Join Chris Eaker, Data Curation Librarian, for “Getting Started with the DMPTool,” an overview of how to use the tool and its functionality.
When: 2:00-3:00 p.m., Thursday, October 2
Where: Hodges Library, Room 211
Contact Chris Eaker for more information at (865) 974-4404 or email@example.com.
Amy Billone will read from her new poetry collection at UT’s Writers in the Library on Monday, September 29, at 7 p.m. in the Lindsay Young Auditorium of the John C. Hodges Library. The reading is free and open to the public.
Billone’s poetry collection, The Light Changes — named one of Kirkus Review‘s best books of 2013 — invokes the biographical and creative worlds of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Sylvia Plath, and Virginia Woolf. Kirkus has called the book “thrilling in its courageousness, breathtaking in its vividness.” The Light Changes also won the IndieReader Discovery Award in Poetry in 2014.
Amy Billone is currently an associate professor of English at the University of Tennessee, where she teaches courses on 19th century literature, children’s and young adult literature, and world literature. Her areas of expertise include romanticism, children’s and young adult literature, Victorian poetry, gothic studies, creative writing, women writers, and continental poetry. Her scholarly book Little Songs: Women, Silence, and the Nineteenth-Century Sonnet (2007) is informed by her unique perspective as a woman poet. As the only extended study of 19th century female sonneteers, Little Songs sheds light on the overwhelming impact that silence makes, not only on British women’s poetry, but also on the development of modern poetry and thought. Amy Billone also wrote the introduction and notes for the Barnes and Noble Classics edition of Peter Pan (2005).
Writers in the Library is sponsored by the University of Tennessee Libraries and the UT Creative Writing Program in association with the John C. Hodges Better English Fund. For further information contact Marilyn Kallet, Director, UT Creative Writing Program (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Christopher Hebert, Writer-in-Residence, UT Libraries (email@example.com).
Literature is a powerful force! Every September, libraries and bookstores across the country celebrate Banned Books Week to honor the freedom to read and to draw attention to banned and challenged books.
Join the UT Libraries to celebrate your First Amendment rights during Banned Books Week. We are fortunate to live in a nation that protects the expression of even unpopular or unorthodox points of view. But intellectual freedom is in danger when restraints are imposed on the availability of information in a free society.
Let’s take this opportunity to state our support for ensuring that all viewpoints are available to those who wish to read them.
Read a banned or challenged book. Follow our chalkboard in Hodges Library (next to Starbucks) for a countdown of the Ten Most Frequently Challenged Books of 2013.
You’d be surprised: even classics like To Kill a Mockingbird and The Color Purple have been challenged. See the lists compiled by the American Library Association at ala.org/bbooks/frequentlychallengedbooks.
Follow along on Twitter at #volsread and #readbannedbooks and post a shout-out or a quote from your favorite banned book.
Your art could be on display in Hodges Library. The library is looking for artwork for the Student Art in the Library juried competition. Cash prizes will be awarded. Submit your work by September 21 to lib.utk.edu/artinlibrary.
In addition to our popular Residence Life Cinema, we have added Criterion-On-Demand USA to our suite of streaming services. Criterion-On-Demand USA has a collection of over 600 films available at all times.
Films from this service are available off campus, and can even be downloaded to a computer for 48 hours. Off campus users will be asked for their Net ID and password (just like some of the databases do when accessing off campus). This service requires a download of “Criterion Silverlight Player”, which most of you have already downloaded. Films can be streamed with or without subtitles, and they can be watched individually but cannot be shown at group events.
Criterion-On-Demand USA offers films from 20th Century Fox, Paramount Pictures, Dreamworks SKG, MTV Films, Open Road Films, Fox Searchlight, and some additional smaller studios. New films are added quarterly. Please note that this is not the Criterion Collection of remade classic films and art films. You can begin watching anytime at the following URL: http://s.lib.utk.edu/criterion
A new exhibit exploring natural history illustration from the 1500s to the 1800s opens Friday, September 12, at UT’s McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture. Some of the rare books on display are on loan from the University Libraries’ Special Collections. Special Collections items include works of zoological and botanical illustration, notably a 1665 imprint of the historic Micrographia, by Robert Hooke.
“Birds, Bugs, & Blooms: Natural History Illustration from the 1500s–1800s” will run through January 4, 2015, and explores over 300 years of the intersection of science and art in natural history illustration.
More than fifty rare books, prints, and objects are on view, highlighting how increasing access to books, travel, and technology, as well as the evolution of knowledge, changed the way in which illustrations were created and interpreted. From fantastical images of beasts in the 1500s, to extremely accurate depictions of plants and animals in the 1800s, the illustrations in the exhibit demonstrate the rapid advances of natural history during the print age.
Several exhibit-related programs are planned. Free family programming includes exhibit-related Family Fun Days on September 27 and November 1, and a Stroller Tour for parents, caregivers and young children on October 6.
Other programming includes a natural history illustration workshop, “Using Scratchboard to Create Lifelike Illustrations” on October 5, and lectures on natural history and illustration by Barney Lipscomb, Leonhardt Chair of Botany at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, on October 22, and UT Professor of History Denise Phillips on November 6.
See the exhibit page for more programming details: http://tiny.utk.edu/birdsbugsblooms.
“Birds, Bugs, & Blooms” is curated by Catherine Shteynberg and Christine Dano Johnson. Lenders include Arader Galleries, Dr. Gordon Burghardt, the National Museum of Health and Medicine, and UT Special Collections. The exhibit is presented by Arader Galleries, W. Graham Arader III, UT Federal Credit Union, the Ready for the World Initiative, ARAMARK, Bennett Galleries, and the Ardath & Joel E. Rynning Museum Fund. Additional support is provided by Knox County, the City of Knoxville, and the Arts & Heritage Fund.
The McClung Museum is located at 1327 Circle Park Drive. Museum admission is free, and the museum’s hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Free two-hour museum parking passes are available from the parking information building at the entrance to Circle Park Drive on the weekdays. Free parking is available on Circle Park Drive on a first-come, first-served basis on weekends. Free public transportation to the museum is also available via the Knoxville Trolley Vol Line.
