PSU Library has recently gained unlimited simultaneous users for the Web of Science. No more being turned away when you want to discover who is citing your work or the work of others. In keeping with the beginning of a new academic year and with additional access to this database, the Library has invited an ISI trainer to offer a seminar.

  • Using the search interfaces for topic, author, source title, and address searching, as well as more advanced set and field combination searching

  • How to expand your literature search using the unique Related Records(r) search

  • How to use cited reference searching to navigate the literature and discover who is citing your research and the research of others

  • E-mailing, saving, printing, or exporting your results

  • Saving a search history so you can use it later to find new information
