Announcing Springer Nature Experiments – Methods and Protocols for Life Sciences

Research protocols and methods are critical to plan an experiment and ensure reproducibility, but can be very time-consuming to discover in typical databases.  Springer Nature Experiments  is a new, free-to-use, research tool to help you easily find and evaluate relevant protocols for life sciences experiments. The platform uses advanced knowledge models to categorize content based on techniques and organisms – the two most commonly used search categories identified in user research. With the help of cutting-edge artificial intelligence and text mining technologies, these terms are recognized and extracted from the content, enabling users to perform searches and narrow down their results quickly and easily.

Check out Springer Nature Experiments  and also take a look at the other Springer Nature journals, books, and databases brought to you by the UCF Libraries:

Over 25,000 scholarly ebooks in science, technology, and medicine.

Reproducible laboratory protocols in the Life and Biomedical Sciences.

Research platform dedicated to information on materials, their properties and uses.

Featured Bookshelf: Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month

May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month!

As you can imagine, Asian Pacific American covers a fair amount of area. An Asian Pacific American is an American (whether born, naturalized, or other) who was born on or has heritage from anywhere on the Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia (New Guinea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the Solomon Islands), Micronesia (Marianas, Guam, Wake Island, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru and the Federated States of Micronesia) and Polynesia (New Zealand, Hawaiian Islands, Rotuma, Midway Islands, Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, French Polynesia and Easter Island). These areas cover a wide array of languages, cultures, religions, and ethnicities that have brought countless skills, hopes and dreams to the United States

Click on the link below to see the full list, descriptions, and catalog links for the 20 titles by or about Asian Pacific Americans suggested by UCF Library employees. These, and additional titles, are also on the Featured Bookshelf display on the second (main) floor next to the bank of two elevators.
