Welcome new Stanford Engineering graduate students!
Our dedicated team of engineering librarians is excited to meet you in the coming weeks! We look forward to learning about your specific interests and how we can best support your research and education at Stanford. You can stop by and find us in the Terman Engineering Library, located on the second floor of the Huang Engineering Center, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are also available at a couple of New Graduate Student Orientation events this week, the Sciences & Engineering Libraries Info Session this afternoon (slides available here) and GOALIE on Friday. We hope you will be able to join us!
For orientation week, we’ve also pulled together a helpful checklist to get you started with your research at Stanford.
- Install the Lean Library browser extension
We have a vast collection of journals, society literature, databases, and books that you can access online. This extension will allow you to access these e-resources from off-campus.
- Pick a citation management tool (aka bibliography management tool)
Ask your advisor or research group if they have a preference for a specific tool.
- Set up your Stanford Profile
Network with other Stanford researchers.
- Get a unique author identifier from ORCID
Make it easy to promote all your research publications.
- Attend a library workshop
Gain some practical research skills, foundational coding, or data science skills.
- Attend a walk-in research consultation session
Get personalized assistance with a variety of software, coding, and data issues.
- Visit the Terman Engineering Library
Meet your librarians, use the study space, or check-out a microcontroller kit.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
