Using Mendeley, a next generation citation management system -- this session will provide a demonstration of and basic instruction for using Mendeley, an online citation management system. Mendeley allows users to create formatted bibliographies in many citation styles, and output those bibliographies to word processing programs such as Microsoft Word. Mendeley also allows users to access a social-media-like network of fellow scholars in their disciplines, as well as share references and bibliographies with colleagues.  All faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend this workshop.

Attendees may want to familiarize themselves with the product slightly before this demonstration. Mendeley is available as a free download for use with web browsers or as a standalone program. Attendees may also find this online guide to be helpful.

Attendees who use laptops are encouraged to bring them to the session, so that they can install the free Mendeley software.


The deadline to register for this event is Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 5:00pm.

No experience necessary.

Interactive Maps of RIT: 1901-2018

This interactive project showcases 4 different technologies of mapping RIT history, from the Mechanics Institute and Rochester Athenaeum, to RAMI, to RIT Downtown and RIT today. Locating the campus from 1901 to 1929 to 1957 and 2018, each map tracks RIT creativity and innovation in both time and space. Using Google Maps, Arc GIS, CAD 3D printing, and hand craft, students in the Digital Humanities and Social Science program will help you interact with and contribute to the maps.

"Imagine Your Future Library ..." you fill in the blank! Come be a part of Rochester's biggest bucket list. Use markers to share your dreams for libraries of the future on our giant list? Have some great ideas to better libraries and communities? Have you thought of an invention that would work perfectly in a library? Sketch out the plans for others to see! Come and share your love for libraries and be a part of this exciting project!

Sculptures in the Air: ASL Poetry Project

Do you and your children need a break from the crowds around campus? Stop by the Library where your children can "check out" a book to read in our Book Nook. Then take a spin in our fun Magis Spun chairs!

Betsy Dell

Intended audience:  This workshop is for all full-time faculty who want to submit a strong package for promotion OR are planning to do so in the near future.

How to best prepare materials for external reviewers and identify potential reviewers?  Get a copy of a colleague’s promotion package (or a portion, such as their research statement). We will not share these with each other. We can discuss what we learned from reviewing someone else’s statement:

  • How well did they sell their work?
  • Were there interesting strategies/formatting used?
  • Were there things you thought could have been done better?)

Contact at least one potential external reviewer (some of you have already had to complete this!). We will share strategies for selecting the reviewers and our experience with the process. Did they say yes? What does the university policy say regarding external letters?  Bring with you information from your college policy. 

Pre-session Homework:  Identify what you want external reviewers to write about – are there specific areas that would be best addressed by different people?  Bring an exemplar promotion package from a colleague who was recently promoted.  Also, bring the university policy AND *your* college policy on promotion to professor.

-Light Refreshments will be provided.

-Interpreters provided upon request and subject to availability. Please make your request today at myaccess.rit.edu.

-Registration preferred, but walk-ins are welcome.

This session is the third of three workshops that will be offered as part of the P3 Group program.  Any interested faculty member can attend any of the three workshops, participation in a P3 Group is not required.  AdvanceRIT, Council for the Representation & Engagement of Women Faculty (CREW), and Faculty Career Development facilitate the formation of peer support groups for faculty submitting their packages for promotion to full Professor and Senior or Principal Lecturer. These teams are referred to as Promotion Package Prep or “P3” (P cubed) groups.  

 What is a P3 Group?

This effort began in 2016 when a group consisting of seven women faculty from five different colleges began meeting together and working towards assembling effective promotion materials.  Out of this group, six faculty submitted their proposal packages and all were promoted to full Professor.  Based on the positive feedback from participants from the first year, we broadened the effort and now coordinate the formation of P3 Groups for ALL interested tenured faculty seeking promotion to full Professor and for Lecturers seeking promotion to Senior or Principal Lecturer.   Visit the Promotion Package Prep P3 website for more details on this program. 

 Please contact advancewomen@rit.edu with questions.
