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.
Learn to manage your money at the Financial Literacy Boot Camp, October 10. Students can attend the full day of workshops or drop-in on individual sessions. All sessions will be held in the Lindsay Young Auditorium, 101 John C. Hodges Library.

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 (email@example.com), or Christopher Hebert, Writer-in-Residence, UT Libraries (firstname.lastname@example.org).

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.
Join the UT Libraries for an open house from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 3, in the Commons, 2nd floor, Hodges Library. Learn about the libraries. Play games. Win prizes. Strike a pose at our free photo shoot by a professional photographer: we’ll be live-posting to Instagram.
Help us help you. Enter our hashtag contest and #helpushelpyou. What could the Libraries do to make your research easier? Tweet your suggestions Wednesday through Friday, Sept. 1-3, to twitter.com/utklibraries. We’ll award prizes for the best suggestions.

On Monday, August 18, our new One Search goes live! We’re launching a major upgrade to the Libraries’ discovery portal: the search box in the middle of library homepages will yield exponentially more results than in the past.
Now includes articles. One Search results include journal articles. Previously, articles could be found only by searching within individual databases.
Searches far beyond UT. Each search will likely return thousands more items than in the past because our new product (Primo Central) searches far beyond UT’s holdings.
Electronic full text. Searches will return many, many more items for which the full text is immediately available electronically. Look for the green radio button and “Full text available” or “Electronic full text.” To see the full text, select “View Online” and don’t be intimidated when another pre-populated search box pops up. Just pick one and “GO”!
More search hints:
Refine My Results. To “Refine My Results,” use the facets in the column to the left of the entries. Quickly narrow the results to “Articles” under “Resource Type.” Or expand a facet list (“Show more”) and select “Refine results” to limit hits to several, selected Resource Types, Collections, Topics, etc.
Expand My Results. Want to see an even larger universe of resources? Check “Include resources without electronic full-text.”
Want local holdings only? To limit search results to only those items owned by UT, click the “UT Collections” tab at the top of the results page. For a known-item search, select “Browse UT Collections” and enter a new title, author, subject, or call number search to browse through an alphabetic or numeric list of our holdings.
One Search vs. databases. Accessing the full content and full functionality of some databases still requires searching from within the database interface (lib.utk.edu/databases). Unsure? Ask a librarian.
Yes, One Search is easier… it’s broader… it’s better. But it’s also far more complex. All the more reason to ask a librarian. Visit the Research Assistance Desk (in Hodges, that’s Room 209) or AskUsNow (lib.utk.edu/askusnow) via phone, chat, text, or email.
The UT Libraries is seeking student artworks for the Student Art in the Library juried exhibition. The contest awards a First Prize of $300, Second Prize of $150, and Third Prize of $75. Selected two-dimensional works (drawings, graphic design, prints, photography, ceramics, painting) will be on display in the exhibit area during the fall semester. The contest is open to all currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students, in any discipline. Submission deadline is midnight, September 21.
