On Thursday 15 October, the Savvy Researcher Series will be hosting a bibliometrics workshop. This workshop will provide applicants with guidance on how to extract citation data and h-indices from Scopus and Web of Science, which are indices required to be reported in the rating application. The workshop will include setting up a Google Scholar Profile and will be presented by the UCT Bibliometrics Working Group.
Every year we employ senior students as part-time Student Assistants in various departments and branches of the Libraries. Each department or branch library recruits Student Assistants independently, so when enquiring about a job, you need to approach the section or branch library where you feel you would like to work.
History not only tells us where we come from, it also contains valuable lessons. Thus, the process of preserving history through the archive is vitally important. Recognising this, UCT recently launched Humanitec, which saw the digitisation of more than 14 000 objects from the 14 archival collections housed at UCT Libraries. Here is a snapshot of what is available through Humanitec, and in some of these collections.
