      I think trying something like this would be great for researchers at UTS if we can find a venue for any researchers who are keen to try.

    Some keen researchers could try this at UTS. We'd even be happy to help with a venue in the UTS Library.

Graduate Junction - The Postgraduate Community - 0 views

  •  
    Graduate Junction is an online community connecting postgraduates who have similar academic interests. Graduate Junction aims to break down the interdisciplinary and institutional barriers that exist in academia and connect people based only on the work that they do and the interests that they have. Graduate Junction was founded in 2008 by two postgraduates at Durham University working alongside their own degree projects because they felt isolated in their own fields. When the first version of the Graduate Junction platform was launched it received support from postgraduates and academics alike. It has continued to grow with the community now containing almost 16,000 members.
    The community has continued to evolve over time with new functions and features added based upon suggestions from the community itself. All functionality added to the site since its launch has been requested by postgraduates. Despite having no external funding or support these changes have been made possible thanks to the time input of postgraduate volunteers, making Graduate Junction an entirely postgraduate-led initiative.

    Colaboratively manage bibliographic information and share resources

    Hi Sophie, I currently use Endnote but am thinking about switching to Mendeley. I've read that Mendeley doesn't interact as easily (i.e import references) with Library Online Catalogues /databases- have you tried it?

    Also, are there any copyright issues with Mendeley if I want to keep pdf's attached to all my references and share my library with users? Does it have the functionality to share just citations but not the fulltext pdf's?

    Hi Sarina

    1. I haven't seen any options to export references to mendeley in catalogues or databases. However they get around this by using a web bookmarking tool to bookmark and then import citation information from databases. I haven't tested this function so you may want to try it out with the databases you like to use before you give up Endnote. Here's the link to learn more: http://www.mendeley.com/import/
    2. This is a bit of a copyright minefield. You could only share someone else's copyrighted work if you have written permission from the author, or they use something like a creative commons license which allows sharing. Educational purposes only encompasses sharing a work to UTS students or staff and this sharing must occur through our DRR (http://www.lib.uts.edu.au/staff/learning-and-teaching/digital-resources-register). You can share your own materials as long as you still hold the copyright of your work and haven't signed it over to your publisher. *phew* This is why we love open access at UTS :D We have heaps of info about copyright here: http://www.lib.uts.edu.au/students/finding-information/copyright
    3.You can add citations without adding a pdf.

    I hope that helps :D
