Physical Sciences & Engineering Library
The UC3 Summer Webinar Series is a forum for timely topics of interest to the UC community. The California Digital Library (CDL) will highlight projects, services, and developments in areas of digital preservation, web archiving and data curation. We hope to raise awareness of these issues, and the resources and services available to the UC community. Our webinars will feature librarians, scientists, and technologists.
Webinars are scheduled twice a month on 2nd and 4th Thursdays from 2-3pm PT, but check the schedule for exceptions and additions to the summer series. . CDL will potentially be adding other topics to our initial list. We will use ReadyTalk to provide both desktop and audio access, and will add links to this page for slides, audio recording, and notes after each webinar. Please feel free to drop in to whatever portion of the session that you can.
Between now and June 30, 2011: UC Davis Faculty and Researchers must physically return and renew all library books that have been renewed 2 times.
Please return books to the borrowing Library for renewal.
All faculty and research borrowers who have library material checked out may renew most books until June 30, 2012. All faculty and research borrowers are allowed 2 renewals. Once the 2-renewal limit has been reached, the Library requests that books be brought in for inspection. They may then be checked out again as long as there are no holds and they do not need repair.
Short version: If you’ve renewed a title 2 times, you need to bring your books in and renew in person!
IMPORTANT: If you are leaving for the summer, ensure you have a plan for returning books that may be recalled. You are responsible for returning titles in a timely fashion if they are needed by another scholar.

The UC Davis libraries now has a page on data management plans. The page points to California Digital Library services for creating a data management plan, as well as pointers to various repositories for data (including the UC’s own Merritt service) and other helpful webpages from other universities.
Data management plans are now required for all new National Science Foundation grants, as well as some NIH grants. For the NSF, a data management plan is a peer-reviewed two-page supplement to the grant application that describes how you intend to store, manage, and share your research data.
For more information on UC Library services regarding data management, please contact Phoebe Ayers: email@example.com.

A common assignment is to find a literature review on a particular topic — and perhaps write one yourself. But what is a literature review? And how do you find them in the library? A new library handout helps answer these questions — download it here.
Still confused? Need more help? Contact a reference librarian or just come into the library — the PSE library reference desk is open 9-5, Monday-Friday.
