"What Does Google Tell the World About You?"

Tuesday, October 24th, 3pm - 4pm in Wells Library Room 138

Crafting an intentional online presence is paramount for securing a job after graduation. In this session, we will discuss the suite of tools available to you—including Twitter, LinkedIn, IUScholarWorks, Google, and a variety of blogging and ePortfolio options—and the strategies you can use to control your online presence and craft an attractive narrative for potential employers and graduate schools. We’ll begin the session by asking you to Google yourself and we’ll conclude with tangible tactics for improving what shows up in your Google search results. 


Graduate Student Event

"Predatory Publishers, Open Scholarship, and Your Research"

Wednesday, October 25th, 2pm - 3pm in Hazelbaker Hall 

Predatory publishers prey on scholars by charging them a fee to publish or present their work. Publishing with a predatory publisher can be expensive but also career damaging. For this session, library experts will help graduate students from all departments differentiate between predatory and legitimate publishers. We will discuss strategies for assessing publication venues and tactics for selecting the right publisher for your scholarship.
