As the year wraps up, here are a few ways you can prepare for summer with an eye toward keeping current, courtesy of the Sheridan Libraries Blog Archives…newspaper

1. Set up search alerts for your favorite databases. We’ve posted instructions for Scopus as well as for databases hosted on EBSCOhost (such as ERIC, Business Source Premier, PsycINFO, Inspec, and more). Have a favorite that’s not covered? Let us know!

2. Trick out your computer to reach Johns Hopkins resources quickly and easily. At the top of our recommended list are the library toolbar for Firefox or Internet Explorer, browser search plugins for the Johns Hopkins libraries catalog, and other gadgets we’ve had inlaptop development. Working from off-campus? You should be able to login to access Johns Hopkins resources by logging in to the proxy service with your JHED ID. Check here if you have trouble.
