Session Title:
How to Obtain and Maximize the Utility of an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID)
Presenters:
Douglas Leavell,Dawn Paschal,Ron Splittgerber,Dave Hoffman
Category:
Research
Date:
Monday, January 14th 2019
Start Time:
10:00 AM
Session Length:
50 minutes
Room:
LSC 304
Description:
CSU is now a member of the LYRASIS Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) consortium. The ORCID is a global initiative managing more than 5 million registrations worldwide, following each individual over his or her professional life. ORCID provides a unique and persistent identifier – an ORCID ID – that distinguishes faculty and students from other researchers and a mechanism for linking their research outputs and activities to their ID. This ID can be used to automate publication updates, connect to researcher’s current works, connect to existing grants, connect existing profiles (e.g., ResearcherID, ScopusID, Medeley) together, simplify the publication import process into Digital Measures and meet some Federal grant application requirements for the National Institutes of Health and the Grants.gov portal. This session will outline the benefits of having an ORCID, describe the process necessary to obtain an ORCID and explain how to complete the ORCID profile.
Goals and Target Audience:
Describe the process for obtaining an ORCID and integrating the ORCID with various systems including Digital Measures. Provide tips for completing an ORCID profile. Our target audience is anyone involved in research and publication including faculty and graduate students.

11:00 AM

Session Title:
Biosafety and Export Controls
Presenters:
Robert Ellis,Claire Chance
Category:
Research
Date:
Monday, January 14th 2019
Start Time:
11:00 AM
Session Length:
50 minutes
Room:
LSC 376
Description:
Do you work with biological agents? Select agents and a few more pathogens or toxins not regulated by APHIS or CDC, such as rabies and yellow fever, are restricted for export outside the U.S. In certain cases, development, production, and use of agents in the U.S. may require that CSU take precautions. This PDI session will help protect you and CSU from inadvertent missteps with biologicals related to Export Controls. Join us for this session to learn the basics of Export Control and how these federal laws and regulations differ from biosafety requirements. Using hypothetical scenarios as a basis for discussion, we will explore together the impacts of these requirements on CSU researchers and research administrators working with biologicals.
Goals and Target Audience:
Participants will learn Export Control basics and the connection to biosafety, and discuss export controls in the context of typical CSU activities. Target audience: anyone at CSU who works with biologicals and has international partners.

1:00 PM

Session Title:

Description:
Despite our best intentions in the world of research administration, sometimes things go awry at every institution. Join some of us in research administration who came to CSU from other universities and know where the bodies are buried as we share the stories that caused us the most heartburn at the time and the most fun to retell later.
Goals and Target Audience:
Anyone who works with research administration at CSU.

Session Title:
International Shipping, Export Controls, and You: Impact on CSU
Presenters:
Matthew Wixson,Shannon Irey,Scot Allen
Category:
Research
Date:
Monday, January 14th 2019
Start Time:
3:00 PM
Session Length:
50 minutes
Room:
LSC 376
Description:
Do you ship or mail information, items, materials, or software outside the U.S? Many of us at CSU work with research partners or sponsors, universities or organizations, or students or individuals overseas. As a result, we are subject to Export Control laws and regulations. This PDI session is designed to help protect you, your department, and the Green and Gold from unintentional mistakes with international shipping related to Export Controls. Join us for this session to learn the basics of Export Control and how these federal laws and regulations impact our international shipping activities. We will share three perspectives: Central Receiving, Atmospheric Science, and Secure and Global Research. Through discussion of hypothetical scenarios with participants, we will explore the effects of these requirements on CSU faculty, staff, and students.
Goals and Target Audience:
Participants will gain an understanding of the basic requirements of Export Controls, learn how these impact international shipping, and apply these ideas through discussion of typical CSU activities. Target audience: Anyone at CSU who ships internationally.

Session Title:
Introduction to Zotero: Easy-to-Use, Free Citation Management
Presenters:
Renae Watson
Category:
Research
Date:
Tuesday, January 15th 2019
Start Time:
10:00 AM
Session Length:
50 minutes
Room:
Morgan Library Computer Lab 174
Description:
Zotero is a citation-management favorite because it can be used after graduation, on the go, on multiple computers, and more since it is free. Come learn how to: obtain Zotero; collect citations for articles, books, and more right from your browser; organize citations in Zotero; and cite quickly and easily in your preferred style using the Zotero plug-in in Microsoft Word.
Goals and Target Audience:
This session is intended for faculty, staff, and students--anyone who needs to organize literature/sources for their research, large or small. Attendees will learn the basics of using Zotero, as well as its strengths and weaknesses.
Session Title:
Make an Impact: Tips and tools for selecting journals for publication and promoting and sharing your research
Presenters:
Heidi Zuniga,Mara Sedlins
Category:
Research
Date:
Tuesday, January 15th 2019
Start Time:
10:00 AM
Session Length:
1 hours 50 minutes
Room:
LSC 300
Description:
Part one of this session focuses on scholarly publishing and increasing research impact. With thousands of academic journals currently in publication, deciding where to submit can be challenging. We will discuss tools and resources that can help make that process easier. We will also discuss ways you can increase your publication’s impact through social media and profiling tools like ORCID. Journals and funders increasingly require researchers to share data along with the results of their research. In part two of this session, we will discuss the benefits of sharing research data, strategies for making your data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable), and factors to consider when choosing a data repository. We will also talk about newer types of publications like preprints, registered reports, and data papers.
Goals and Target Audience:
At the end of the session, participants will understand: -What tools and resources can help authors decide where to submit a scholarly article for publication, including in open access publications -What tools and methods can help increase the impact of publications -Why data sharing is beneficial, both for themselves and the research community -The FAIR principles of data sharing -How to choose a repository that is appropriate for their research data -Alternative publications like data papers and registered reports Targeted Audience: Researchers (including students) from all disciplines who want to learn more about scholarly publishing and communication, how to increase the impact of their publications, and/or who need to comply with data sharing requirements.

Session Length:
1 hours 50 minutes
Room:
LSC 306
Description:
Learn about government Web sites with primary sources. CSU’s Government Information Librarian will show where links to some relevant governmental sites can be found—and what selected sites look like. Just what constitutes primary sources will be discussed. See images of books, documents, photographs, reports, posters, and more. See datasets. See and hear stories told by war veterans. While the bulk of the sites shown will be on the free Web, a select number will feature library databases available only to CSU affiliates. A brief amount of time in the session will be spent discussing how to find government sources on the Web so that attendees will have some strategies for finding resources these types of resources. Please keep in mind that not every government document or publication has been digitized. There are a lot of really valuable primary sources out there of interest to any STREAM researcher! (STEM plus Reading and Arts, which includes history.)
Goals and Target Audience:
Increase awareness of the wide variety of primary sources available to researchers (and students) from all areas that are found in government sources. Targeted audience is anyone interested in using data or other primary sources in their research. Also those who want additional places to recommend to their students for finding reputable resources for their projects.
