Promotion & Tenure Tools for Social Sciences
Thursday, February 28, 2013 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EST)
Going up for promotion and/or tenure? Interested in finding out how databases and software applications can be used to show comprehensive evidence of your scholarly impact?
Join librarian Brenna Helmstutler as she discusses promotion & tenure tools for the Social Sciences. It will be held from 3:00-4:00 p.m. in Classroom 1, which is on the 1st floor of Library North.
Using the tools available within the library’s subscription databases, resources, and free software applications can yield the following benefits for Social Sciences faculty:
- More substantial evidence of scholarly impact than mere citation counts, which offers a stronger promotion & tenure narrative statement in these times of competitive criteria.
- The tools are user-friendly; most are accessible 24/7 online. These are all available on Helmstutler's Promotion & Tenure Tools Research Guide.
- Subject librarians for each department are trained and available to assist in using the tools.
- This emerging service addresses the library’s overall mission to support Georgia State University faculty research and more specifically, one of its strategic initiatives: to use new, emerging, and established technologies to support the research, teaching, and learning of faculty and students.
