Gumberg Library Research Events Help Expand Educational Horizons

Two upcoming Gumberg Library virtual events will focus on providing research and resource help for faculty.

The first event, Finding Funding Using SPIN, will be held Thursday, Jan. 14, from 3 to 3:30 p.m. The online session will give attendees an overview of the SPIN system to help them find information about grants from federal, non-profit and corporate sources. This webinar will help attendees create an account, search, filter and create alerts for new funding opportunities. The presenters will be Christine Pollock, senior director of sponsored programs in the Office of Research, and David Nolfi, head of research engagement health sciences/STEM initiatives and assessment in Gumberg Library.

Open Educational Resource Advocacy at Duquesne will be held Tuesday, Jan. 19, from 11 to 11:30 a.m. The online session will introduce an initiative to support the use and creation of open educational resources (OER) at Duquesne. Co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence, this program will provide a brief introduction to OERs, then discuss ways that faculty, staff and students can collaborate to bring flexible and affordable resources to Duquesne’s campus.
