Dibner Workshop #20 Beyond Google: Electrical & Computer Engineering Research

In this session, intended for graduate students, we will explore various databases and resources with an emphasis on Electrical & Computer Engineering Research. We’ll concentrate on how and where to use key tools, how to be most efficient and effective in your searching, and how to create systems and workflows that support your work. By becoming adept at these three things, you’ll have more time and energy to concentrate on the content of your work. 

These techniques will be useful for researchers of all science disciplines, not just Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering students.
